    Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your mom.I have known Rita for years (since I lived in Denfield) and she was always such a likeable person with her funny ways and her accent which I loved.I then had the pleasure of seeing her again quite a few times when she came into the pharmacy and we would chat about “remember when”.I know she will be missed by all of you.May your happy memories help you in the days to come and keep her in your hearts forever.

    love Cindy
