I was a caregiver for Rita for a few years. She was one of my favorite residents. I looked forward to seeing her everyday. She told me so many stories about her husband Tom and all the work she did as a riveter. She never failed to make me smile and laugh all the time. Rita and I enjoyed talking about makeup and clothes. We also did lots of coloring and I saved many photos she colored for me. We listened to Frank Sinatra every morning while I assisted her. I felt as if I was her best friend rather than her CNA. I absolutely adored her and she will forever have a place in my heart. My condolences go to her family and friends. She was an amazing person.
