Rita what a wonderful entertainer you were. You made your homeland of Cape Breton come alive to people far away like myself in Sydney Australia. Your music brought me joy, happiness and peace and I was so happy to actually see the Tea Rooms when we travelled through Canada. God bless you, peace always rest in peace - your music is a joy the words bring Cape Breton and Canada alive - there will never be anyone else like you - God rest in peace Julie Waller Sydney Australia
Rest in peace Rita i will always remember you from the letters i received
from you the lovely music and your gorgeous voice,just reading your
tributes as i was on your website looking for cd's and read about your death
i can't believe it. You will always be in my heart and i will always play your music.You will always be the best angel.
Rest in Peace Rita. Jennie Gore. Great Malvern. Worc's. UK
May has passed, I should have been wishing you a Happy Mother's Day, and yes, a big Happy Birthday. I should be looking forward to your shows, but that is only a thought now.
Today is two months, you are missed. This is for you, my dear friend.
She set the stage
She wrote her thoughts
She sang a song
She made you laugh
She made you listen
She made you cry
She had the last word
She had the last laugh
She had the last invite
This was Classic Rita
This was Intimate Rita
This was Loved Rita
Cape Breton's Lady
A gifted Lady
A gracious Lady
