So so Sorry for your loss. I worked with Rita for many years with Jackson County. She was a true friend!!! I would always have
a Mr. Goodbar at my desk waiting on her when she would come to my office. She always said that was her chocolate fix for the
day. I will hold onto all the good memories we had. My prayers to all family and friends of Rita's !!!!
