I still can not believe you are no longer with us. The short period of time that I was getting to know you, you welcome me into your home with open arms and said yes, I am your “Aunty Rita” your mother (Gloria “Joyce” Wilkins-Lettsome) sister. And I think I said, now I finally get to meet my Aunty Rita. My stay at your home was short but the memories will always be remembered. Rest in Perfect Peace, until we meet again. Your Loving Niece Cynthia P. Lettsome A.K.A. “Pat”

I am sending my love & condolences too the family. Ms. Rita(mommie) was always kind to me and she was the only other woman I would call mom. Every time she would come home from work and I would visit PeeWee(Jimmy) if she was cooking she would always take time and patience too teach me what she was cooking. I loved Mommie very much and she will be greatly missed but I know she is back home with Pops.

Dearest Rita was like a big sister to us. Our mother, her aunt Ettie helped to raise Rita as she lived with us for a time. She was always a beautiful, loving and fun loving soul. We will forever cherish her memory. Love, Georgia, Clinton, Toddy, Jackie (Pinky), Nina, Assata and Kisha. Our condolences to our family.
