Not sure what to say?

Driving out to Anita's apartment from UMass for Sierra Club meetings, her signature salads with red grapes, the spread of teas on offer, hours spent stuffing envelopes, or writing letters to the editor; the people she brought together and the energy, fierceness and dedication of her mind--Anita defined a great deal of my college experience. I won't ever forget her, and as time passes, the value of her legacy and her example only seem to rise. My condolences to her family, and to everyone...

Whenever I see purple pansies I will think of you, Anita. Thank you for sharing your time with me, thank you for being a strong, inspiration amazing woman. Thank you for taking me to be first classical concert and sharing your love of music with me.

Sincere condolences.
Anita was a wonderful friend -- in Washington, where I met her at the National Institute of Mental Health --and after she made her home in Williamsburg. We kept in touch by calling and visiting each other. So many happy memories...

Sincere condolences to all of Anita's family -- we had a wonderful friendship with her for many years and have such happy memories of the interesting lunch parties she hosted in her apartment in Williamsburg. The people she gathered together were always fascinating, and she had the ability to generate such energetic conversations on important political issues. We have missed her since she moved to Burlington.
