Dear Haughey,

My mother Mary F. McDowell worked with Rita at the Ill Bell, and how many times I myself had spoken to her over the yeas and been to her home wen Bob was still living.
She had an aunt L. Little who in 1912 donated a window in St. Rose church and Rita had gone to mass there many times over the years where her relative had gone.
Mom and I last spoke to Rita at Blessing hospital when her son was so sick, she and Bob were great together and sure had fun too.
so many times we thought of her, my mother also knw her from ND, she was two years behind my mother.
I will have a mass said at St. Rose for her soul.
You had a very kind mother and funny too.

Paul K. Geers
Mary F. McDowell
