Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
I never had the pleasure of meeting Rita. I do know Mickey though, and since the woman is the better half of us guys, I can only imagine that she was pretty awesome. I can only offer my prayers and thoughts to you during this. I wish you all peace and love and to cherish the good memories. - Posted by: Nick Benjamin (Friend (Mickey)) on: Jan 04, 2022
