Dear Mike,

I am so sorry for your loss of your loving wife, friend and mother. I, like so many that knew Rita, were shocked by her passing, as I had no idea she had medical issues. My prayers are with all of you, but rest assured, she is with our Lord and may you find some peace and comfort in his loving care.

I am very sorry for your loss. I was friends with Rita when we were in grade school, junior high and part of high school. We had a lot of good times and went down different paths but thought about her often and wished we had reconnected. My prayers are with you and your family.

Mike & family,
I can't believe she is gone. Rita was my longest & dearest friend in the whole world. I feel very proud to have been one of her friends. She was the nicest, kindest person I have ever met. We were friends for over 40 years & I feel like I have lost a part of my family I loved her so much. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
