We are so sorry to hear about your wife Rita. This poem has helped me through so me rough times... I hope it helps you!
Love and Go On
You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray she’ll come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all the she has left.

To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. I was blessed to work with Ms. Rita at Washington University for the last 12 years. She could brighten any day with her smile and sense of humor. She was loved by all and will be greatly missed.
In His Love and Light,

May all of Rita's family and friends find comfort in knowing Rita is at peace. I am sure you all have fond memories that will make you smile.
I only knew Rita from working at Washington University. We were not even in the same department but had meetings together once a month or so. Just in that small amount of time I was able to see and appreciate Rita's many wonderful qualities. What a joy for those of you who knew her more closely. I hope all of you find the strength you need.

I worked with Rita for about 10 years. We became close friends fast. I'll miss her smile, great sense of humor, fierce loyalty and warm friendship more than I can convey in words. This is not an end to our friendship as I plan to
