I was saddened to read of Rita's death. Having spent most of my childhood growing up just a few houses from the Hustava home, I appreciated the neighborhood and the several families who made us be who we were. Rita was one of the "additional" mothers we kids had in those days. 22nd Street, just down from Fairview School, was a good place to live and grow up, and Rita was a part of it. Many memories, many regrets now as 1 more member of our "family" has left us.
