Dear Rita and family,
We will always remember our Sundays lunches with Rita and Phil at the monastery, usually in front of the fireplace. He was always ready to share his thoughts and stories of his travels.
Be assured of the prayers of the all the Sisters at this very sorrowful time.
God bless you.
