Memories

I just want you to know how sad I am for all of you right now. You had the greatest Mom in the world. She was the strongest woman I know. She was my friend for SOOOO many years. Way back before she was ever married to your Dad and we remained friends for so many years. I loved our phone calls, they went on forever and we always found things to laugh about. I will miss her terribly. I know you have a large hole in your lives right now, but I hope you're able to take comfort in knowing that she's with her Lord and Savior. She told me not long ago, that she's already lived alot longer than she ever thought she would. She seemed quite content knowing that her days were probably numbered. She knew where she was going and I think she is now with our Dad again and I know that makes her happy. I continue to pray for all her children that you will find Peace and hope that you won't mourn too long because she would want you to go on and be happy. Cling to each other now, and you'll all be fine I know. God Bless and keep you all. Much Love to You All, Marie

To the entire Bisping family: May you know that you are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We will miss having Rita as our neighbor. Not only could she make us laugh each time we talked to her, she was just like another grandma for the kids, and was a great help for last minute sewing emergencies! Take care and God Bless. Brent, Jessica, Sydney, Noah and Ella
