Message For The Family.

So sad to hear of Rita's passing. We worked together for many years at Sears in the Girl's Wear/Children's Wear Dept. Such a fun loving lady, always telling me of her trips to Las Vegas and her trips to the casino in Point Edward & how good her children were to her. Lots of memories. Sincerely, Linda Williamson
