    Sita was a valued member of the Parks & Recreation Commission when I was the Director. I relied on her counsel & friendship for guidance. I was just thinking about her last week when I was near where she had lived. I know you will miss her. Hugs & prayers.

    Phillip & Bernard, we were your next-door neighbors in the late 1960’s and got to know your Mother well. Your Dad was still in the Air Force. I think both of you were still in high school then. Your mother was a good friend and we enjoyed visiting with her. We’re so sorry for your loss.
