Dearest Lynette, Laura and George, Just heard about your Mom. So sorry I didnt make the wake or mass. Your mom and dad were so good to my mom when she was starting to fail. They would pick her up every Sunday to drive her to mass, even though mom forgot it was Sunday. God love them!! Rita is at peace now and they are all together in a little North Riverside town in Heaven! Love to all, Mike and Dawn

Lynette I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear sweet mom. I loved the pictures you posted of her when you had your special visits of her new hat or outside enjoying her milkshake. You have lots of good memories to help you through these difficult days ahead. She will be missed by a lot of people but mostly her family. My sincere condolences to you and the kids. You are in my thoughts and prayers Love Heather Powell-Olson
