There is not enough room in this little box for all of the wonderful things we have shared on this journey. One: you always laughed at the bumblebee joke and had me tell it over and over because you liked the way I told it. And B: you said your not coming back this time, that you believed in reincarnation (many happy returns), but this was the last time as you had been enlightened and so did not need any more classroom time. So this was your last trip. Well I'm grateful to have been able to call you my friend. I'm going to miss you. I will see you when the scale finally tips for me. Michael A. Sobczak
Goodbye, dear friend. Hard to believe we knew each other for 25 years. I'll miss the weekends we spent together when I came to visit you and your mom. I know you are at peace in her arms once again. You were the most artistic person I knew and your art always worked its way into the gifts you made for me. They are treasured still. You will always be in my heart, "Lovely Rita".
As a little boy I remember asking you incessantly to draw pictures for me... you never said no and the pictures were always beautiful. Christmas presents... yours always seemed to be the best. I remember you dancing with Maudey at grandma's house. One New Year's you gave me a tophat that was green and said Happy 1966 on it. I thought it was cool. You chasing me around playing hide and seek. I was always in awe at how you tackled and mastered so many endeavours from computers to real estate to interior decorating. You pulled together a wonderful memorial service for gramdma.... what a great sendoff... handled with grace and dignity. The best thing I can say is that you were an aunt in reality, not theory. You always took the time. I remember visits to Chicago; having lunch with you, going places, never a dull moment. My 3 year old is sitting next to me and he said you should wear pajamas in heaven to be comfortable. He picked out the car icon as he thought you might need it go somewhere. Your my Aunt Rita now and forever. Blase
