CandleIt's been 5 years Rita-Pie. I'm sad, still for us but happy you're out of pain & probably being cut out of poker again.
Miss you, but can't make that trip. Mom can't get the wheelchair in her car....I can...Love & miss you!

CandleI know I am late at seeing this, but I want to send my condolences for the loss of Rita Oehlert. Edna Allison was my great aunt. My mother was Thelma Irene Murphy, daughter of Frank Murphy from Hampton. If any of the family remembers me, you can contact me at [email protected]

Candle1st. That video was wonderful! Seeing everyone young, & seeing Toon & Aunt Maye, brought me to tears. I was shocked when Mom called and said she was ill, but with what unbelievable. WE ALL were so lucky to have her in our lives, My Gramma loved her like another daughter & called the 3 of them 'The Murphy Girls'. She was like an Aunt to me. I spent my share of time there, and can hear her yelling RANDY, TIM!...she had to, she had an excellent teacher-her Mom. She was so proud of Chad, Chris & Blake, and then the greats.
She will not be forgotten. Ever. She was much loved...griping and all. (I TRIED for years to get her a good luck charm, never did)
All My Love, Renee
