Rita was "My Friend" and I loved her dearly. I would take her shopping, doctors appt when needed, to her hair appts, and to eat...but what I can say about her is this: I am not sure who touched who's life - did I touch Rita's life or did she touch mine? My prayer is that we touched each others lives in more ways then we think. Rita had a heart of "gold" and was interested in every aspect of your life and had many memories she shared. She will be missed for a short time and then we will see her again that is my belief. Rita's Legacy lives on through her two Son's ; Arend and Bernie and her grandchildren and I would say; "What a Legacy that still lives".
