    I am very saddened to hear of Rita’s passing. She was a great person and lot’s of fun to visit with. Her and I had many cups of coffee together at the house in West Fargo. After just losing my son Todd last week I am sorry I will not be able to attend Rita’s service,but I will be thinking about each and every one of you, and keeping you in my prayers. God Bless Kathy,
