    Mom and I send our sympathy to all of you. We got to see Aunt Rita a couple of times in the past year after not seeing her for 40 years. It was great to be able to talk with her after so many years apart. She was extremely happy to visit with mom and talk with her on the phone this past year. The started to become very close.

    She will be missed and we are both sorry for your loss. She is at peace now.

Please share your thoughts ...
