Rita: Her always pleasant attitude was contagious to all. A truly Good Samaritan who practiced what she preached. A true helping hand and a true friend who ,even though she had a large family, also helped my wife and my large family when I left on short notice and was gone for over a year in combat in Korea. She repeated that friendship and support over many years A true friend of the military. Rita deserves a firing squad and a bugler when she is laid to rest, BUT pomp was never her style. She now certainly deserves ro Rest in Peace and I'm sure she is.
