    I grew up with Anita and loved her dearly. I had no idea she was ill. I was an extended member of her family and will never forget the great times we had growing up. Her mama and daddy were like my own as was her sister.

    We grew out of touch over the years but she will always have a special place in my heart.

    There are so many memories I can’t start to list them. The old neighborhood on Morrow Road is gone now but every time I go through there I remember those good times at Beck and Walker’s house with Anita, Joann her sons Jimmy and Mike and their dad Buddy.

    I am truly sorry that Anita has left us and send my deepest sympathy to her family.

    Gary Richards with love
