    Eric & Katherine,
    Our deepest sympathy go out to you both. We had no idea Rita was ill. She was a dear sweet kind woman who showed her love for the family and her Lord by her actions. We had some very good times at the bowling alley on Saturdays. Both of you please know that you are in our prayers.
    Prayers,
    Coach Donnie & Julie Reynolds

    Eric & Katherine and Family,
    Rita was such a wonderful and talented person. We all met in the singles class at Hickory Hollow Baptist many years ago and became friends. She even helped me get a job at Ingram. I still have some “Snow Baby” Christmas ornaments she made and gave us one year as a gift. We’d lost touch with each other over the years, but we had emailed with each other a few times after I learned she was sick last year.
    I was so sad to get the news last night. I’m so very sorry for your loss. I know Rita was a very special person and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her and loved her.
    Please know that you are in our Prayers.
    Linda & Darryl

    Eric and Katherine,
    It saddens me to hear that Rita has passed away. I had no idea she was sick as we lost touch years ago. The last time I saw her was at the baby shower for Katherine. I have often thought about her and remember her as a sweet, kind, optimistic and helpful person. I worked with her when she first started at Ingram Book Company. You have my deepest sympathy. She was an unforgettable person. Peace be with you both.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I’d like to share some real hope with you. In John 5:28 and Acts 24:15 the bible promises a resurrection of our loved ones back here to earth. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, he brought him back here to earth. He’s going to do that on a much larger scale in the future. In Psalms 37:11+29 it tells us man will live forever on the earth in peace. That really shouldn’t surprise us. That was God’s original purpose; for man to live forever in the garden of .eden. God’s purpose hasn’t changed. That’s why he provided his son to die for us,John 3:16, so we could have everlasting life.. In Revelation 21:4 it tells us there’ll be no more pain or death. Is there pain and death in heaven? Of course not so that’s talking about here on earth. Please go to JW.org and click on to the publication “What does the Bible really teach”. it will answer questions like “where are the dead” and “why does God allow suffering”..
