I was so sorry to hear of Rita’s passing. We were best friends for over 20 years. She was a wonderful girl and woman, that I lost touch with several years. I am sorry I could not find her all these years so we could reconnect. I tried several different ways and nothing worked. I really love Rita and she will be missed. I have fond memories of our life together and think of her a lot. I pray her family will endure this terrible time in their lives.

When i think of you, i think about your laugh, christmas’ and thanksgivings in waynesburg, and me thinking how cool it was to have an aunt that would not only buy me that guns n roses cd for christmas, but actually listen to it with me and actually know all the words! Those are pretty rare qualities to find in an aunt, and i dont think they’ll ever be another one like you. We’ll all miss you, and we all love you.
