I have the fondest childhood memories of my beloved Aunt Rita and Uncle Henri. They were just the best aunt and uncle a little boy could ask for. Following Henri's death, Rita remained a very special aunt. She had a joie de vivre and a spirit that made you feel happy just to be in her presence. I loved her. Norman Sirois
