Just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss of Rita...She seemed like a very loving, caring person that cared deeply for her family. I'm sure she developed that quality of putting others first through her love of something greater...God longs for the time when He will call her, and she will answer(John 5:28). I'm sure she would have loved the thought of living forever in a perfect paradise, together with her children and those 5 grandchildren. It's a promise you can put trust in-His plan for all humankind never changed...until that time, many thoughts and prayers for all who mourn Rita.
