Dear Rita.

You've finally arrived in Hartford who accepted you as America's new daughter in 1953 after leaving Amantea, Italy, and your beloved homeland.

Tomorrow the Lord Jesus Christ will welcome you with open arms in his house, the Saint Brigid Church and will bless you for all the good you have been able to give us.

Rest in peace in the arms of Jesus Christ, God the Father and the Holy Spirit.

A big hug to your beloved sons.

Dante Perri and all your dear Italian cousins.
