Dear Aunt Rita, Going to Florida won't be the same for us without you there. We will miss you and your straight forward way of looking at and dealing with life. We will miss your phone calls, Skip-Bo at Walter's, going out to dinner, etc. We're so happy that your life in Fl was filled with happy days, good friends you cared for and who truly cared about you. We will miss you. Love, Bonar and Marlene
