    Rita will be sadly missed - she was a dear friend - and many memorable visits we had together will be remembered fondly. Rita and I had a connection the first time we met, both born the same year three weeks apart and I come from Scotland and Rita born in Boston of Irish/English heritage had lots to talk about and many good laughs and smiles.
    Rita you are now with your dear Angel friends looking down upon us.
    It was a privilege having you as a dear friend - ❤️Morag and GeorgeWeir, and Joyce visiting from Scotland
