    Rita, We were out of town and did not know of your loss until today. This must be a terribly difficult time for you, being a widow again. You have been gone from Iowa for a long time, but our love for you continues. You have always been strong through the tough times. God will again give you the strength to take one step at a time. Know that our prayers are with you and your family. I am so glad that they are there to support you now. We love you!
