    May you rest in peace my beautiful friend. You cared for so many of God’s creatures and creations. I will forever remember you whenever I see the beauty of nature’s bounty, and the innocence in an animal’s eyes. Our friendship was one of a kind; one that I will cherish forever. Love to you always…

    I will cherish the way God cross my path with Rita into my life path at Crossfire Ministries Church. Rita always had the smile that only God could give. She was so infinite for her love for the Lord of her life. I remember one day after church she just beaming with the enjoyment of her newest on life in the Lord. When she got to bible study, she was as if a young child soaks every word she heard of the Lord.
    Rita I thank God for crossing our path and cannot wait to be in Heaven were time will not end…because your time we spent on earth was too short…Love and Miss you friend and sister in Christ.
