Rita was the nicest and the strongest person I have ever met. She was truly amazing. Her work ethic was second to none. This earned her the Julia B. Fee Sotheby's International Realty Staff Award. She will truly be missed. May she Rest in Peace. Sending lots of hugs to her family!

My Dear Sister Rita, how I miss you so much already. I am sad that I didn't get to say goodbye to you in person. I wanted so much to hold your hand in mine and hug you close while I told you how much I love you and how much you have always meant to me. I do take comfort in knowing that Pete and Jimmy were able to pass on my goodbye to you and give you a hug for me.

I will miss our talks and being able to go to you for advice about anything. You loved your family and friends and showed that love in so many ways. You were always ready and willing to lend a hand. You were a terrific wife and mom. You and Pete have so much to be proud of. Your son is a good man and has already accomplished so much. He will continue to do good things with his life. You were sophisticated but not cold and you would always light up a room when you entered. I will love and miss you forever.

Say hello to grandma, mommy, Anthony and R.J. for me. Except for grandma, you all were taken away from us far too young. Even though I have so many great memories with all of you, I wanted many more. Every once in awhile I will do or say something that makes me think of one of you and it brings an instant smile to my face and a warm feeling in my heart knowing that all of you are a part of me and that you will live on in my memories forever.

Forever in my heart, memories and prayers, your sister Carol

Rita was an amazing person who loved her family, her job and her friends. I was very fortunate to be able to know and work with Rita for her entire career at Sotheby's. She ran a tight ship and we all loved her for that. She showed great strength and courage during her entire illness and she was an inspiration to all of us. May she Rest In Peace . Linda Darer
