Anita, you were the true definition of a warrior and showed a positive attitude daily. You fought hard and will be missed dearly at VUPS. I found a quote on your desk and it said, ” You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice…” That quote speak volumes. We had fun memories in the office, between laughing and getting work done daily. I miss your laugh and loud talking throughout the building. It was a pleasure working with you.
Prayers for the family.
Grammy I know it’s not what you want but I’ve been sitting here all day thinking about you and not able to stop crying. I love and miss you so much.
