    To Bob and family – although it’s been a long time since Bill and I had the pleasure of being spoiled by Rita at Wong’s Restaurant during Rotary functions and beyond, I have wonderful memories of her and know Bill would agree – her patience and kindness always in evidence together with lots of smiles. She was a very special woman and will be truly missed by all who knew her.
    Blessings to you all.
