    I delivered meals to Rita once a week.  She was such a sweet person, and one of my favorites.  I will miss her!

    I knew Rita as her mail carrier servicing her home on Highway 17 for several years and as administrative head of Town government.  Rita always had a smile on her face and was pleased when I had a parcel to bring to the door.  She quite often had a waxed paper and plastic bag with what was an incredible pound cake with white frosting and chopped nuts in the box for me.  I was her Saturday mailman and she knew I was a sweet lover.  I know the family will have fond memories of her as well as the rest of us who had the opportunity to know her.  My sincere condolences to the family.
