My name is Rita
I am a working woman, and widow who has met a wonderful man and second chance on life also. I have two children, Tommy , and Katie . He has 4 children, and 1 grandson 4yrs old, I now have a granddaughter born summer 2011, and expecting a grand baby boy in May 2013. I was a stay-at-home mom until my children were in high school and I wouldn't have traded those days for anything in the world, Treasured them they are precious. I retired from Washington University and work part time at Sam's Club and enjoying my grandchildren.
I lost my husband of 25 years to cancer , 4 months after he died my daughter at age 18 was diagnosed with colon cancer she is in remission but she goes every 8 weeks for treatment and will for the rest of her life. But she has such a positive attitude she hasn't had any sign of cancer since she has been 21 year old. In 2011 ,my best friend and wonderful man I am with was the diagnosed with tongue & throat cancer had surgery and 1/2 his tongue taken out and we are still deal with some things but we really enjoy our lives to the fullest we know not to let stress get the best of us and take every thing with a grain a salt. He also by the way lost his wife of 25 years to female cancer so we know what we feel at times.
