We are sorry we weren't able to attend any of the services for Rita. We loved her so much, she made us feel so welcomed in the Elk Mt. square dance club. We will miss our "vegetable garden talks" and so much more. I will be sending the daughter in law who contacted Jerry, a video of the both of them dancing a ball room dance one night at our club. Fond memories. Will keep in touch with Walter. God Bless. Sharon and Earl Lilley

Always remember to forget the things that made you sad, bur never forget to remember the things that made you glad. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
