In 1989 I lived next door to Rita for a year, ending every day over supper in Rita’s kitchen with Rita Kevin Peadar and Bruno. Rita gave me my own key to their house. Happy times with wonderful memories that reflect the generous loving and funny person that Rita was. She was a selfless role model for living. I will miss them all.
