My Loving Rita was laid to rest yesterday at St. Charles. The people assigning the sites at St Cjharles were gracious enough to look up the plot of my Mother from 1985 and he was able to place my beloved Rita in a newly opened section about 100 feet from my mother's grave. She won't be alone now.
At the wake Rita was a beautiful as she ever was in life. She looked like a heavenly angel wearing the same dress that she wore at our daughter's wedding about 9-1/2 years ago. I also bought space in the same plot so we can be together forever.
Thank you all and especially Jacdkie for posting the Obit and the online guestbook. I wish all of you could have seen how beautiful she was. Also she was buried with the Prayer shawl that Colleen sent he and she loved so much. She never took it off.
Vic, my heart goes out to you. You have my deepest sympathy with the loss of Rita. Take care of yourself best you can now. You are one that I have considered a special friend. On the Senior forum where we met, you shared a wedding picture and I have always remembered it. That Wedding was a long time ago and you had many years together. You will be together again one day. It is not easy being the one left but you can do it. I still miss Joe. God Bless You
I was just reading a post you made and said in part ". . . She also said that she has never seen anyone get this bad and survive. . . " I think Rita and Joe were both that way. He defied what hospice or doctors would say. I truly believe that it is the love that they have that gives them that extra strength to hang on.
May memories and God's love sustain you. How fortunate for you to have had such a wonderful "soul mate" as your earthly partner. Rita is watching over you. I know you will do her proud. Prayers continue.
