Our thoughts and prayers to her family, it so sad. Rita had just spoken to me last week on the phone excited about an article she had written about our son Dan (former cruisemates teen editor), she took much interest in how he was developing on his passion for cruising, we had planned a future phone interview. She seemed like a truly caring person. I am sure many have fond memories of her and those should be cherished. We really have no idea how long our lives are and should all remember that its really about our character that people remember and not our possesions.
