We are so sorry to hear of Rita's passing. We have many memories of times we spent with her at the farm and at her home. She was pure joy to be with. And our Tony shared many special memories of things he and Grandma Rita would do and say. They were jokesters and pranksters! Our deepest condolences for such an incredible loss of an amazing woman. She sure loved her family! Hugs and prayers.

To the best Mom ever,
You were always there for us and always ready for an adventure and you taught us a lot. We learned honesty and to treat others with respect. I will miss your sense of humor,your smile, your just being there as a friend. I don't look at it as Good bye but until I see you again in heaven, I know you and dad will be waiting to greet us with Jesus. I love you Mom, Dennis
