Connie and Kimmy. I still don't believe Aunt Rita is with God and all who preceded her. As Angie said, too many great memories of Rita and our families being together. I will always miss your mom.

Connie & Kim - My heart is heavy and the world is a bit dimmer without your mom's shining light. Too many memories and too much laughter to even begin counting. I love you both. Angie
