Our condolences to the family. May Rita be blessed by the hand of GOD and Rest in Peace in a better place. We will miss you! I always remember Rita always had a treat bag for all of her nieces and nephews at the Christmas party. I have saved many a gold or silver coin and $2 bills from this sweet and thoughtful Aunt. RIP.
