Anita was a breath of fresh air. Having worked with her for many years, she and I had wonderful conversations about school, baseball, and most of all LIFE. She was very positive and had great impact on all.

Ronnie,
May God’s love and peace that passes all of our understanding comfort you during this time and in the days ahead. Anita was a gem of a friend. We played together when my parents owned a service station in front of her parents’ house. That’s when our families became friends. David and Daryl, my prayers are with you and the family.
