  1. So sorry to hear about Reitha. We used to live in the same building as her and she was the sweetest lady I know. She lived and cherished all her niece’s and nephews as she talked about them often. She sure did love everybody as she had the biggest heart and didn’t like to be a burden on anybody. So thankful I got to meet her and have a few memories of her.
