I have missed seeing and visiting with my dear friend Rita for some time now, this since the COVID19 started. Rita was a wonderful neighbor and friend, we visited, we laughed together, we prayed together, we just clicked, like ‘Two Peas In A Pod’. I would tell
My wife I was going next door to take Rita a meal, and just a quick visit. Two hours later, I would return home from my visit with Rita. That was the way it was, Rita was a wealth of knowledge and was a wonderful conversationalist. God Bless Ms. Rita, I will always miss her, and know she has found her new home in heaven. Dave
