    My late Mom, Doris LaDonna, met Rita at Nazareth Academy and became life-long friends. I have fun memories of meeting up with your family at the World’s Fair and sharing a great day with all of you. Your Mom was a lovely lady! I pray that your happy family memories sustain you at this most difficult time. (Losing a parent is difficult; losing your surviving parent is really tough. You’re not alone!) May the Lord hold you all up as you grieve. Fondly, Sandy LaDonna Kolupski
