I would like to extend my deepest sympathies and prayers to the family and friends of Christine Rice, mother of Nassau County's new District Attorney Kathleen Rice. From the obituary in Newsday, Mrs. Rice sounds as if she was a quite a lady. Obtaining a college education in a day when that was not the norm for most women, she raised a family of ten (and instilled a sense of justice and accomplishment in her family.) Her children were her number one priority and one at which she clearly succeeded. Her death was caused by complications from Alzheimer's disease. Her funeral will be held at St. Joseph RC Church in Garden City NY at 9:30 Saturday March 18, 2006. Rest in Peace.
