Rita was our babysitter to us after my mom passed away. She was so kind and fun, she took me shopping to Frankfurt for some clothes. I thought that was neat. She had a scar between her eyebrows, and I asked her what happened. She told that was where the saw dust came from. I was only in grade school, so I really believed her. Rita had several sisters, and they were fun, too. They would take me to their house and treat me like family. When I was older, I babysat Rita's girls. Miss you, Rita, and see you in the future.
