    It saddens me to hear of Anita’s passing. I loved her dearly as most people who knew her did. We lost mom last week also so I know how you are all feeling and you have my deepest sympathy. Guess mom (Bernice Edwards) and Anita are having a reunion in heaven together. Again my deepest sympathies….
