Dear Vern,
We are so sorry to hear about Rita's passing. Many good memories to look back on. Thanks for always bringing me communion when I had so many health issues in the hospital years ago. It was always appreciated. Sharon & Ron Avery & Kay Schnaider

My deepest condolences to Vern and all the family. I offered a mass for our dear Rita. She was a woman of faith, compassion and loved to serve the parish community. It was a privilege and honour to know her. Her faith life was lived in her care and concern for others. Both her and Vern were great witnesses for the sacrament of marriage. Thank you sweet Rita for your witness. May God grant you eternal rest.
