Nita, as she was fondly known by me and my family, was a GREAT lady. She was like a second mom to our family as we all grew up as close neighbors living on Fair Street in Norwich. My heart cracked a little when I received a call from my brother telling me of her passing. My heart goes out to Patty, Russ, Bonnie,Candy and the entire McIntyre clan. Sadly, I cannot attend services tomorrow as I am wintering in Texas but know that I am with you in spirit and love!!
