    Sending heartfelt condolences to you all.
    Aunt Rita was a special lady to our family. I have fond memories of our many conversations in her kitchen over the years…and will always cherish her warm smile as she offered her delicious ‘crocchette di riso’ and ‘torta al limone’
    May she rest forever in peace.
    With much love,
    IsaBelle Lecce-Saliba and Family

    Sorry to hear of the loss of Rita. She welcomed us into the neighbourhood in 2009 when we moved a few doors down. Rita enjoyed seeing the children that attended my dayhome/preschool. We knew we would be welcomed for a treat and a visit when we stopped by her gate. She would take us in and we would sit and chat at her dining room table. She even said she bought special cookies for our visits. The children grew older and our visits were less often but we will always remember Rita. We missed her this summer when we walked by to go to the lake. Will keep her family in our thoughts and prayers. May she be in peace now in her new heavenly home.
