Thoughts for Rita Rausch (1943-2016);

  • So very sorry to hear this news, and much too late too. Rita was one of the great ladies/Moms of my childhood neighborhood. I can clearly hear her calling out Tammy Ann, Todd Allen, Trent, Toby, time to come home! Rita, may I say I am sorry? For yelling out, “I’m not coming “.
    I don’t think she bought it, but let me know if you got in trouble boys.
    I think of the Rauch family now and then, and miss them. Contacting me is welcome.
    Also, I bought a Javelin off of Rita for my girlfriend. Rita didn’t want to sell it, but Danny pushed her to sell. I hope she didn’t regret it, or it caused tension after I left.
