    Dear Rita, Adeline and family,
    I was surprised to see the article about your mom in the Sunday paper. I looked it up on line to make sure it was her because I did not know her first name.
    I loved your mother for being so kind and good to me. She always was so kind to me and concerned for Rita’s welfare. She reminded me of my mom. After being at the house one day for lunch, I went home and told my mom what a great lunch Rita’s mom made for us. She was delighted to make us cheese sandwiches and french fries. My mom didn’t make french fries so it was a big deal for me. I told your mom what a good lunch it was and she thought no big deal about it. I think she did things and asked for nothing in return.
