Condolence & Memory Journal

I am sooooo sorry to hear of Rita's death. I didn't know she was ill as haven't talked to Pammy for some time. Rita and I always said we were going to get together....but, unfortunately, it didn't happen. I regret that, of course...I pray for your peace and comfort and I pray your memories will keep her alive in your hearts. I always smile when I think of her and the time we worked together.

Worked with Rita at the Atchison Workforce Center for many years. Rita was always a happy and outgoing person with great compassion for the people she helped. A true joy to work with. My sincere condolences to Debbie and all of the family.
