Condolences and love to all of your family and friends, Rita. Thank you, Beckie, Joann and Delores for taking such wonderful care of Rita. The last month of her life was very trying for you three and of course, for Rita. What would she have done, if you weren’t there to take care of her and all the decisions that needed to be made? You girls were quite a team and I am proud of each of you. I couldn’t believe how many people came to say good bye to her, that shows a lot of love for her as well as love for the family. God bless all those that mourn her passing.
