Dear Dennis, Penny & Steve and all the grand kids my sincere condolences for you loss. Rita was a special and most thoughtful person. She was my first employee when I ran my business and helped me get started. She had the courage to start a new job with me at a later stage in life and for that I will be eternally grateful. Our friendship continued long after her second retirement, and she took great pleasure in seeing my children when we would visit her on Halloween night for years. A genuine roll model, take care.
