To fellow iris lovers,
I will really miss Rita's energy.
That was one hard working lady when it came to anything to do w iris. 
She got you thinking whether you wanted to or not.
We will use her knowledge from her writings for a long time.
My sincere condolences to the family. 
Linda in CW AZ

In any stroke, is very important to know the signs: When someone feels not well, with headache for example, ask if he/she can say a coherent sentence, if they can put the arms up and finally if they can smile...
In case that non of the 3 can be performed properly, quiclkly to the hospital! The timing is very important to avoid seriouss consequences. In between 3 hours a person can be saved.
So sorry about Rita´s death.

Oh. My. goodness.

I didn't know, and I had just talked with Tom two weeks ago concerning some memberships.  

Time is SO short, people!

Yes, Loic,  this does hurt!

As many of you know Rita and Tom Gormley  it is with sadness that I let you know that on Saturday night Rita had a massive stoke which resulted in irreversible damage to the right side of her brain.
It is a now a matter of time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Rita's family at this most difficult time.
