I was shocked to learn of my cousin Anita's passing. Her Mom, Aunt
Louise was a favorite of mine.
At my age, I can't take the chance of being in a group of people. but
my prayers go out to "Skeets" family.

In Loving Memory,
Glen Rae Wheeler-Carter

I met Anita in choir and soon we became friends. I loved Anita’s sense of humor and quick wit. There is comfort for her family and friends knowing without a doubt, she is in Heaven with her Lord Jesus Christ. She will be missed here.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have not been in choir for a while and have missed Anita ragging on me! You know you have a good friend when you’re comfortable enough to pick on each other, because it’s done with love. She always made me laugh.

I’m sure you’ll miss her terribly. Praying for y’all during this time.

Anita was very special to me when my husband started with Elanco in Tupelo . Charles was his manager and he and Anita invited us into their home and mentored us at the beginning of our 35 year journey with this wonderful company . I am so grateful for having known both your parents. May God bless and comfort you all.

Several years ago I joined the choir at Bellevue Baptist Church. I knew few people In the choir and Anita took me under her wing and I quickly became one of her friends. Anita taught me, and prayed with me, hugged me when I needed encouragement, corrected me when I sang the wrong note, but most of all she loved me. There is a big void in my heart and I will miss my sweet friend. I know she is singing in heaven now and the heavenly chour must be even sweeter. I am praying for Todd, Marissa, Brian, and all of the family.
