    Dear Cherek family, my sincerest condolences on the loss of dear Rita. What a wonderful, kind and generous person — always had a smile and something funny to say. How you will miss her. I am out of town, so I won’t be able to attend the vigil or Mass, but you will all be in my thoughts and prayers. Cindy Brown

    Jeff, Robin, Audrey, Elise and Cherek Family,
    Lewis and I are so sorry to hear about the loss of Rita. It made me (Lupe) feel so warm to read about her devotion to Our Lady. I was raised on the Rosary and the love and devotion to Our Lady. She is the one I pray to daily for my family and loved ones. May she help and guide you through this difficult time. Robin and Jeff,you will be in our thoughts and prayers during this time of great loss. With our sympathy and love,
    Uncle Lewie and Aunt Lupe Hutfles

    Our hearts are saddened to hear of Rita’s passing. We didn’t know her long but cherish the times we shared at church. Just the past 24 hours we learned of paths our children had taken, there was Rita. She was truly a Christian mother and well loved by many. God be with the entire family as She is now within His arms and that of His Blessed Mother Mary.
    Mike and Terri Darby
