It's still hard to believe Rita is gone. In my mind and heart, she will always be a part of my Assumption and BK experience, and whenever we classmates get together, thoughts of her are always close to the surface.

We were like Felix and Oscar in personality, and yet we both enjoyed being with one another. One of my fondest memories was of Mrs. Joost throwing a graduation dinner party for us, and just how lovely it was. She treated us like "real ladies" (probably crossing her fingers the entire time), and we had a great time.

I cannot think of BK without missing Rita, and I suppose it will always be that way.

Rita and I did not get close until junior and senior year. She made my senior year tolerable,she and I had economics the last year together and a few other classes. We were always in trouble in economics(which was the most boring class of the 4 years at BK.)I spent some time a few years after HS hanging out with her in our hippie Riverside days while she was first teaching.We had so much fun, I moved to CA and lost touch with her. Years later I saw her at the 20 year reunion, and as always she made it so easy to pick up just where we left off. When I was viewing all the pics from the 40th reunion, I ached to see her face in the midst of all the group pictures.She left us way too early, a beautiful person, who I am so happy to have known for the seasons of my life that I did.

Rita was the first girl I kissed.  6th grade, in a closet of the Tallahassee Motor Court.  San Jose swim team at a meet in Tally.  I told her mother this and she mentions it every time I see her.  Lanahan was throwing water balloons.
