    Rita was the best of human beings. Kindness and goodness radiated from her. She was the kind of role model that any parent would want for their child. We loved Rita and we will miss her warm smile, her grace, and her abiding friendship. Please accept our sincere sympathy . . . . and God bless you, Bill.
