Anita, my heart goes out to you and your family. Although I never met your mother, I remember how fondly you spoke of her and how close you were to her. I lost my mother when I was 13 and still miss her so much. I would give anything to just have one conversation with her.
My breast cancer decided to pay me another visit after 12 yrs and my prognosis is terminal. I will find Carmen after I enter the pearly gates and tell her what a wonderful daughter she raised and how kind and sweet you were to me. I always looked forward to our visits because I knew you would cheer up my day. You had that way ---- always positive and cheerful and everyone loved to see you come. This part of your personality must have been just like your mother. And, you look just like her.
Thanks for your kindness to me and the impact you had on my life. After visiting with you I would say to myself "I must try to be more like Anita." You left a positive impression with everyone you met from our office. Everyone liked seeing you come through the door! I am going to relay this to Carmen when we meet.
My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. With love and prayers from your friend Betty Dalton Clark.
Your smile and kindness was always welcoming. As you have moved on to the next life, your memory and stories will remain in the heart of those that knew and loved you.
Sonia von der Lippe, Jacob and Rachel Salvia
