One Condolence for “RITA BLEVINS”

  1. Raymond Anderson says:

    This is late in the day, as I only stumbled across the obituary. Frank and Rita were friends of my parents (Leonard and Myra) in the 1960s, and they often played cribbage or other card games together. I was only six years old or so, but still remember them. Regards, Raymond
