David and Todd,
Many a day I spent at your house as a kid, I’m talking kindergarten on up.
I remember going to your grandmothers with you all for dinner as well as going to Comiskey park where your father had a connection and we sat behind the scoreboard and watched the guy physically change the score and stats. So cool!
Spending the night at your house was a special treat because your Mother treated me with such kindness and love. I laugh as I remember your Mother saying she was the bumper pool champion and I won! In retrospect, she threw the game. That’s the kind of woman she was.
I’m so glad that for 30 years I stopped by to see her when I flew in from Florida.
I couldn’t attend her services being in Florida, but I was there in spirit.
Your Mother was THE epitome of class my friends.
God bless her and may the Lord welcome her with open arms.
Rest In Peace Mrs. McQuaid, you are home. You are most definitely home.

I will remember Rita for the truly remarkable woman she was. She played such an influential role in my life. I am glad I got to tell her how much I admired her. David and Todd, your families are held in my, and Aunt Lee's, prayers for you all.
