Rita: You will be missed. We shared good and bad times and got thru it all. I will miss the yearly visits you made to my house.
May God bless and keep you in the palm of his hands. God speed.
Your Sister-in-law, Kay Falcone
Sorry to hear about Aunt Rita’s passing. I know we haven’t seen nor heard from anyone in a long time. I remember her as the best. May God bless her
Rita and I shared many a good time together. She was ten months older than I am, so now I’m the oldest one left in the family. My husband, Bud, was very fond of Aunt Rose; he said she always cooked special things for him. So, of course, the Falcone family were among the first Bud took me to meet.
Bud and I were married when Pete and Rita were going together, so we “double-dated” a lot. All my memories are fond ones, and I shall miss talking on the phone, visiting Scottsdale and having Rita visit me.
My prayers are with you, Jimmy and Cathy, for I know how much you cared for your mother. You have nothing to regret – you took very good care of her and she loved her family very much.
Love, Aunt Jane
Debbie (Solesky) Howard
So sorry to hear of Aunt Rita’s passing. As Rick said it has been a long time since we last saw her, but my memories are very clear of her and Uncle Pete , Jimmy & Cathy. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
