Kris Kerlin, Katy, TX

Being with My aunt Rita and her family, in her last month of life here in Houston, TX was a profound blessing for me. I've never seen anyone fight harder to live and, accept with grace, the inevitably of death. We never have enough time with the people we love and I miss her already. I treasure all of the many things I learned from spending time with her. Her ability to let us love her even as she fought illness and became "feisty" and frustrated at being in the hospital, has opened my heart in ways I didn't know possible. Her light shines on for all of us who have known her and we carry her with us in who we have become as a result of knowing her.

Sorry to hear of your loss, Vic.

Michele Swihart, Elkhart, IN

My mother was an inspiration. Her thoughtful, loving, caring, generous ways were received by many. Throughout her many battles with illness, never did she complain but rather wanted to make sure that others needs were taken care of. My friend Pam, hit the nail on the head when she wrote that it was no surprise that after Mom's prayer service in Sugarland TX, the ray of light shinned so brightly down on us to show us the power of God's love and encouragement to always strive as hard as Mom has through her life. I am so going to miss her wonderful holiday meals, birthday gatherings, and cookie baking time, and mostly those daily phone calls. My mother has given me many gifts and tools and now it is time for me to put them to use! I have some very big footsteps to follow but with her guiding love from above and shinning light I will succeed in life in being a mini shadow of her. I pray that with God's grace, I will be able to forgive the medical mistakes that were made as Mom would not want me to carry that resentment in my heart. I love you Mom!

Mikki , Elkhart, IN

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I don't know much about Rita but I do know she loved her family. We always talked about cooking! She even gave me a recipe for her famous BBQ sauce. I am so sorry to hear of her passing but I know she is in a better place. May God bless your family during your loss of a such a special lady.

Lisa Scheetz , Elkhart, IN

My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time of loss. I talked with Rita in the hallway at Goshen Hospital many times over the years. She will be missed.

Pamela Deitch, Elkhart, IN

Dear Vic, Michelle, Megan and family, Words can not express the loss your all feeling and the journey you have all taken during this battle for your wife, mother and grandmothers life. As I watched all of the pictures of her courage and strength and her great will to kick cancer in the rear end.. I saw your endearing love bring you all so close. Her smile would light up that hospital and the prayers were many thru facebook and else where as you all walked this path together. It was of no surprise after the prayer that a ray of light would beam so brightly and show us all the power of God's love and encouragement to always strive as hard as Rita did because she lived her dash from beginning to end well done my faithful servant. She has inherited the kingdom of heaven. . He came to take her home. I love you
