The world is a little darker without the light of aunt Rita. I loved her very much, she was my favorite aunt. As a child, I'd get very excited when uncle Gene, aunt Rita and the cousins came to vist. She made me feel special, and gave the best bear hugs in the world. She was the most genuine person I've ever met. I'm so glad I knew her. She will be terribly missed.
