To my cousins Earl, Brian and Mary Lou, my heart felt condolences in your time of grief.
I wish there wasn't as much distance between us now and I could be with you in this hour of need.
Rest in peace Aunt Rita.

Rita and I have been friends for over 60 years. We had a lot of good times together. She was one I could confide in and talk and laugh together about life.
I'm missing her and always will.

I am so sorry to hear of Rita's passing. She was a kind and caring person. After her marriage to my Uncle Frank, we became good friends. Rest In Peace, Rita and fly with the angels.
