My most sincere condolences go out to Erik and Anita's family. I was in the Navy when Erik met Anita when they were working together and then meeting her while on leave, and remember how she (and Erik) seemed to really shine being with one another! I also remember emulating them and their relationship in my own quests for the "perfect mate". I was later asked to be in, and a part of their wedding, where i had the pleasure of meeting Anita's wonderful family. I still consider it my honor to have been a part of their beautiful day. While time has flown by, as time does, and geographic areas have separated us,i still look forward to getting together with Erik when he travels to Maryland on business so we can catch up with one another. I know Anita will be missed by many. My heartfelt feelings go out to you Erik, Marissa, Rachael, and your entire famil(ies). I Love You guys. Peace and Love, your friend Steve

I regret it has been 30 plus years since I've had contact with my good Bellevue high school friend. My thoughts and prayers are with Erik, Marissa and Rachael. I willl always remember Anita for her joyful heart, gentle spirit, and warm smile.

Eric, Marissa and Rachael, please accept my deepest condolences with the passing of your wonderful wife and mother, Anita. It's been years since we've seen each other, but I remember her well. She was beautiful, funny and so very kind and sweet. You had a great love and I know she will be missed. My prayers go out to you and the girls, her family, and yours, and God bless each of you.

My Sincere Condolences to Eric, Marissa, Rachael and all of the family.

Anita's love, the love of Marissa and Rachael and all family, and the love of Christ has shown through Eric in the years that I have worked with him and have known him as a friend.

I pray that your hearts will receive comfort from our Heavenly Father and that all of you can find a way to repair your broken heart. Anita has instilled much of herself into her beautiful daughters. I pray also that through the years that they can always feel her presence and rely on her teaching and her continued love.

Eric, thank you for modeling with Anita all that a family filled with love and respect for each other and the love of Christ can be.

May God Bless and Comfort and Strengthen you always in your loss of a precious Wife, Mom, Daughter,and friend.
