Rita and family,  So sorry for your loss.  I am part of the John Mowery family who were your neighbors in Landisville.  Many times you and Tom would come to our house and visit and perhaps play cards.  I know Helen Marie and Rita since they were babies but then you moved to Lancaster.  My thoughts and prayers are with you all.  May your memories sustain you at this sorrowful time.
