|Let the memory of Rita be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Rita Morrow, a wife, daughter, sister, aunt, & a friend, 48, born on May 18, 1965 and passed away on April 20, 2014. We will remember her forever.
"Hard to believe it has been a year. No wonder Jeff is so sick...memories.
"Jeff let my husband and I watch the DVD last night. Seeing all those pictures of Rita with her family - laughing, joking, cutting up...we miss her."
"Hello my childhood playmate, roommate, dancing buddy, beloved sister of mine. As they say, “40 years now where’d they go?”
Way too fast. It only seems like yesterday we were running carefree through the fields, waiting on Mawma and Pa Neal to pick us up, chasing firelights on Mississippi nights, fishing or messing with our brother, then running like the devil to keep from getting snatched by our ponytails. Those were the simple times. Could not wait to be grown or so we thought. If only today we could return to 8 and 10. But we can’t. But I know you will be waiting on me to get there. Keep me a place until then, I love you and miss you."
"I had only had the privilege of knowing Ms. Rita for the last 11 months. She was such a wonderful lady who always made everyone around her feel loved and welcome. I always enjoyed our little Saturday afternoon chats, I just hate I never took the time to have our coffee & 7up date. I am so thankful to know that Ms. Rita is with her Savior in heaven and looking forward to joining her there one day. Love and miss you Ms. Rita."
"We love you very much and going to miss you whole lot rest in peace love you always your sister Ethel gone but never forgotten this is Moma I love you. A lot and I'm gonna miss you very very much love mom."
"(FOR THE FAMILY)
The Grievers Prayer
Dear God please hear my prayer. My body is numb and my mind is racing. My heart is shattered and my world upside down. I am hopeless and scared. So many memories, but yet not enough. The world keeps moving and I am frozen. I feel connected to nothing or no one. There are many around me, but the one I desire is not here. I feel cold, lost, and purposeless. I am so tired but unable to sleep. Please hold me, hold me tight. The color of my world is gone. I cry out to you in despair. Oh God! Why? Please God hear my prayer. I will try to rest, close my eyes, and find courage to fight to feel hpe again. Thank you God... Written by Angie Cartwright"
"Rita was our neighbor, living at the other end of our apartment building. She and Jeff were one of the first people we met when we moved in just over 6 years ago. Rita was honest and to the point. She didn't take anything off anyone, yet at the same time was a really sweet lady. She will definitely be missed around our little community. I'm so sorry she's gone so soon in life."
"You where the one who kept everyone laughing and u will be forever loved and missed very much. We will never know why god took u so early but u are with him and uncle robert now. Love u and miss u"
"So for your family and there lost ,tell everyone we love them,, And may you rest in peace"
"Sorry that you was taken away from your wonderful family so soon.RIP"
""If tears could build a stairway" If tears could build a stairway and thoughts a memory lane I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again No Farewell words were spoken No time to say good-bye You were gone before I knew it And only God knows why. My heart’s still active in sadness And secret tears still flow What it meant to lose you No one can ever know. But now I know you want us To mourn for you no more To remember all the happy times Life still has much in store. Since you’ll never be forgotten I pledge to you today A hallowed place within my heart Is where you’ll always stay. God knows why, with chilling touch, Death gathers those we love so much, And what now seems so strange and dim, Will all be clear, when we meet Him. I Knew you for a Moment RITA, WE LOVE AND MISS YOU VERY MUCH AND ALWAYS WILL... FLY HIGH!!!! Love Your Sister, Teresa Your brother in law, Tommy, Your niece, Jasmine, & Your nephew, Brian"
