Thank you to all the wonderful friends and caring neighbors that were a part of Rita's life in NC. Rita often said she lived in a special community made up of special people. The warmth and thoughtfulness of her 93rd surprise birthday party (covid style) truly astonished her! It was a fun memory in her last year.
