Subject: RE: Obit: Rita Ferrara (2021)
I found out she'd died because somebody said something on someone else's Facebook page. Glad to see this thread. Sad for the reason.
Rita was always smart, strong, kind, creative, and generous.
I took a bunch of photos of a hummingbird zipping around the jewel weed in my back yard, and she asked me if she could use a photo for her art - I think it was wood burning. She said I could have any hummingbird pice of her art that I wanted. I never asked for any, but they were great.
She held her community together. I'm so very sad I'll never see her again.
My love goes out to that community, and especially to her family of all varieties.
