Anita, we will miss your smile, your stories and your sense of humor. No one had a memory of birthdays and anniversaries of family and friends like you did. You were amazing!!!
You endured so much the last 13 months but now you are free from pain.
You can talk nonstop with family and friends that were at Heaven’s door to welcome you home with open arms.
We will miss you so much but our loss is Heaven’s gain. Rest In Peace sweet girl. You are my “Hero”.
