    Dear: LaBanco Family, and friends, you have my deepest heartfelt condolences. May God be with you to bring you comfort at this difficult time. He promises at Isaiah 25:8, “He will actually do away with death forever…and will certainly wipe the tears from all faces.”

    We will miss Rita dearly. She was the best neighbor anyone could imagine and a very dear friend. I will miss our gardening days together and our conversations in the yard. God's blessing to you and your family Joe.

    My sincere condolences to the LaBanco Family for the loss of your dear love one Rita Mae. May our Heavenly Father, Jehovah continue to provide your family the strength to endure and comfort from the wonderful Hope he has promised us through his Word, the Bible found at Isaiah 33:24 and John 5:25, 28, & 29.
