Rita was a loving friend and did her best to always help people along their journey. She was preceded in death by her father Harold L. Patrick, and close friends Jimmy May and Johnny O'Connor. Survived by the love of her life Todd Mollock, son Darrick Patrick, mother Nancy Walters, brothers James Patrick and Harold Patrick Jr., sister Lisa Patrick-Wright, grandmother Lora L. Morris, special nephew Cody Patrick, godchild Joliet Morrill, and a host of other relatives and friends. The Second Line (brass band parade) began at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 30th, 2010 starting at The Abbey at 1123 Decatur Street with the Treme Brass Band leading into the Memorial Service which was held at Melvin's Bar at 2112 St. Claude Ave. Musicians at the ceremony who performed for Rita were Coco Robicheaux, Guitar Lightnin' Lee, MC Trachiotomy, The Unnaturals, and The Pallbearers among others."

Zara Malik, 2010. 

"Right before our grade 5 talent show where I sang the song “I Believe” by Nikki Yanofksy aka a Canadian Olympics CLASSIC. This was “backstage” and I was performing the song with my friend Kristen who I had a HUGE crush on. Anyways I was always a very musical and artistic kid but painfully shy so this was my first time putting myself out there."

Alyssa Yeary, April 17, 2011 

"I’m playing a drum for a church play. I haven’t been to church in a long time. But I remember singing twinkle twinkle little star for the whole church and playing in Sunday school."

"I remember this day pretty well, I remember wearing these silly little headbands all the time (as you can see, with the weird rhinestone on the top right of my head.) I think I got them at an outdoor flea market that I used to go to all the time in El Paso with my mom. I was definitely so nervous to take this picture and was super intimidated by everyone in the photo. Kami was one of closest friends, but definitely more popular than me."

Joliet Morrill & Renni Kieschnick. 2013, Washington Square Park, Marigny, New Orleans, LA. 

"I had recently moved back to New Orleans. Renni and I went to St Paul Lutheran School in the Marigny. When I was younger, this park was right inbetween my mom and dad's house, and I would come here after school with my dad all the time. It felt silly revisiting my childhood park but we had no shame getting on the swings."

"My family and I were supposed to be in Europe for my parents research and we were renting our house out to other folks. Sadly, we had a visa problem so by the time the renters had to move in we couldn’t leave the US. So we made the most of the situation and rented a van and drove across Florida! We were all laughing in this, my parents were so stressed but we were all excited."

"I was 16 and on Instagram someone had tagged me in some challenge where you drop what you’re doing and take and post a picture of you at that exact moment, no time to get ready or anything. I felt insecure without makeup but I took these webcam selfies on my laptop and posted them."
