Rita was an upper classman and a childhood friend. So sorry for your loss. I see the spark in her eyes, just like when we were little!

I am so sad to hear of Ritas passing. She was such a sweet lady. My daughter Angie had lots of good times at her house with Amy. She will be singing in that Heavenly choir now. My prayers are with the family.
