    Hankinson/Kindred Gerry, I visited with Rita the first week of June and she talked happily of you coming to ND
    for a trip you had planned to go to Jamestown. She was talkative, sweet and content, and she always had a smile for me, as we talked of my kids while she so clearly recalled all the details of each. I will miss my dear friend and neighbor. I am sorry for your loss.
