On behalf of the Capuchin brothers, I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Rita. It is truly humbling to receive donations in memory of Rita's life. Please be assured of the prayers of the brothers for the entire Flanagan family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Rita!

When I was little the first time I went to a Catholic church was with my Grandma, I did not know what to expect, when she came back from communion she put her hands over her face and was praying (I did not know this) and I whispered in her ear "did that make you sick?" and I heard a little chuckle,she always accepted me for my hyper self. she taught me how to make pickles and oatmeal cookies and was the kindest and funniest person I know, she loved to travel and has been to all 50 states. Today she took her last trip, to heaven and I know God himself met her at the gates. lots of love and prayers to My Aunts and Uncles and all of my many many Cousins
