  4. Dear Rita, Ava, and all the family,
    No matter how strong our faith and our belief in being with Jesus in the afterlife, it is painful to say an earthly goodbye to a loved one. It’s a real hit to the heart. You will miss her deeply. Rita, as a Viz colleague you were always there to support me when I had a sadness in my life and there for me when I needed to talk over teaching challenges. Ava, you so radiated the joy of the Lord in the classroom and halls of Viz! What an asset you were in the classroom and to all of Viz
    Emily Kersting must be smiling at the wonderful family she nurtured.
    I pray you all find peace in your memories.
