I left Cape Breton for Halifax in 1994 to go to university and beyond my vacations and long weekends at home, I seldom go back. Like many, I didn't appreicate where I came from until I started seeing it in the rearview mirror. Rita's music and the music she inspired from other Cape Breton artists gave and continues to give many of us who have had to leave the Island, comfort and joy and pride. To this day, at 37 years old I still tear up at "Home I'll Be" and I suspect I will til I'm back home in Cape Breton. Rita not only made it ok to be proud of being a Cape Bretoner. She made it ok for those of us who struggled to be away and who longed for the day we could go back. Anyone who spent a summer in Cape Breton saw her there too and knew she loved and missed it as well. Thank you Rita for the comfort your music gave me. May the angels in Heaven's choir be able to keep up with you. :)
