Thoughts and prayers with the Blateri family as I mourn with you over the loss of your beloved wife, mother and grandmother. I am sorry to have missed the opportunity to meet Mrs. Rita, but as a friend of Frank Stephen, who is the most exceptional person of character, strength, brilliance, and generosity I have ever met, I can only imagine that Frank came from exceptional parents in order to so easily exhibit these traits. In fact, Frank has said that everything he is, he is because of his parents. What a legacy Mrs. Rita has left in Frank. What a contribution she continues to make to the world. Thoughts and prayers for peace with you all, Jhan

Frank, Thank you for contacting me when Rita passed.
I was sorry to hear the news and will miss her. Unfortunately, due to my health I was unable to attend the funeral. I always enjoyed our conversations and visits and have many fond memories from our years together. She was always positive and embraced life. To me she was an angel. I will keep you and the family in my prayers.
