GUESS WHOSE BIRTHDAY IT IS???

MY LITTLE SISTER'S!
I LOVE YOU RITA!
(a.k.a. "Jungle Mom")
Rita holding her grand-daughter at the beach house on Hunting Island just this past August!

Our last family supper at Olive Garden before she returned to Venezuela.

Oh - almost 20 years ago. Rita is busy talking while Clint inspects my new son - Joshua Rios!

Holding her new nephew - Josh Rios, while she is pregnant with her baby boy!
Rita is the red-head in the back of this Bible Study in her yard in Ciudad Bolivar!
Our mother and my Josh were there on a visit. Notice the two Joshes are hanging out in the hammock! You can barely see Jackie's head in the middle of the photo and little Jewel is sitting on the lap of the man in the forefront. Jayde is the baby in the walker. Such cutie pies!
Rita, I wish I had more photos of you on my computer so I could do a worthy tribute to you and your life's accomplishments. I have some lovely ones of you which I plan to scan one day! haha But you know me!
It may never happen.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
