Rita Cattine as a young lady
This online memorial was created in loving memory of Rita Pereira, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign Rita's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Rita forever.
Rita..gone, but not forgotten. We are truly blessed and thankful to have had you for a Mother. You taught us how to live..you taught us how to love..you taught us how to laugh..you taught us how to cry. The values you have passed on will last us for a lifetime. Our memories of you and all the special times we shared, will last forever. Mom, we love you, until we meet again..
We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. ~ Author Unknown ~
