WOW - Knew my "Aunt" Rita since my 1st grade. Whatta gal she was. My mother Anne Vogel Collins & she were BFF. Funny history is my father Chuck dated Rita and my mother Anne dated Dan Daley. Somewhere in time the girls Rita and Anne switched men! LOL. Being a Bradforian myself, always enjoyed visiting the Daly clan and then what great fun it was when Bill Hogan and Rita married and lived on Cape Cod where Chuck & Anne were too. The memories of them both at the Bass River Yacht Club Regatta parties were famous. I will certainly miss talking with Rita these past years. Sharp of mind was a thing I marveled at. To all the Daly & Hogan clans-people, my Wife Susie and I offer our love & fondest of great memories to you all for Rita Daly Hogan.
