My therapy dog, Poppy, and I were regular visitors to PACE. Lita was always happy to see Poppy and ask questions about her. My sincere condolences to her loved ones.

I was a volunteer at PACE in North Syracuse until they shut the place down in March. I remember Lita well and always thought she was so sweet. Such a lovely lady.
