I Just heard of your loss. Rita was a high school friend. Later when I’d see her she always greeted me with a smile & something to share.
Prayers to Ken, the girls & their families. Dee Jackson.

Rita was a lovely lady with a big heart...I will always remember her smile and the kindness she showed me. God Bless you Rita and your entire family for you are loved.

My condolences go out to your family during this time. I used to work with Rita at the bakery. She had a great smile. I enjoyed the conversations we used to have together. What I remember most is the love she had for her family. I worked with both Rita and her daughter Kathy and was always amazed by the bond you two had. “Psalms 34:18 The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those crushed in spirt” May heart goes out to you all.
