I met Rita in 2005 when we moved next to she and Jim at Sandy Shores. She was so welcoming and invited me to join her on the porch. Rita always asked about our family and seemed sincerely interested. She was very empathetic when my dad passed and shared stories of her mom whom she treasured. There wasn’t a dog she didn’t like and our dog must of sensed that for as soon as we arrived at the park, our dog ran to their deck. But most of all her love , devotion and appreciation for her “Jimmy “ stands out. Jim.....may you find peace in the good memories and the fact that you were a true blessing to Rita. I will miss Rita greatly.
