Dear Uncle Gerard, Tut and Zena; I would like to offer to you my most heartfelt sympathies at the passing of Tia Rita. My heart which has always been full of love for Tia is now heavy in her loss. She may have passed on from this earth, but now, we all have one more loving guardian angel to watch over and care for us. My prayes for her and you all continue for today and always. Lovingly; Dan Lacombe.

Gerard: So sorry to learn of Rita's passing. You have been dealing with her illness for so long. May you be able to reflect on the happy times and let the sadness go. Will see you in the Spring - as part of the "lunch bunch". Ellen
