I met Inita when first moved to Mocksville over 30 yrs ago. Our first conversation we talked and laughed liked we knew each other for years. She checked on me a few times a week always saying she had to pass my way to get home. I enjoyed our Mary Kay make up time too! She was such a caring person & a joy to be around. I called her "Ms. Dignified." Though we have to say food-byr, we're comforted to know that the love has never left us and will never let us go. Even though we cannot know exactly where or when we have to say goodbye the last time my sweet sweet caring friend I do know we will surely meet again. Rest for your work is done & you did it well. I love you Inita. Fly, Fly away . God bless your family.

All of you are in our prayers as we remember Inita and the life she lived. We considered her our dear friend. Her bright smile and laughter we will remember always. Her caring personality and her willingness to help others is measured by the fullness and the Love she had for others. Heaven has gained a treasure. We will miss her but God knew what was best for her.

Inita, I became a neighbor in November 2018. From the day of meeting her , our spirits meet as one. We became like caring sisters looking after one another. We kept checking in on one another. What every I or she had , we had. We prayed so many times together and for one another. Inita is a neighbor/friend that has left valuable memories for a lifetime. Rest my sister
