Dearest Joel, Celeste, Sylvain and family. Sorry for the loss of your mum. Almost a month since you lost your dad. This is so sad. Had the privilege of working many years with your mum in the lab at Courtaulds. We had many laughs at work and when I did go over to the house.
There are no words to ease your pain but please know I am thinking of you all.

We shared many summer weeks together as 'best' cousins, visiting each other's families. Treasured memories. Anita was always a good, kind hearted person and I feel deeply for all the broken hearts that will miss this cherished person.

You have my deepest heartfelt sympathies. May she now rest in peace with Danny.

Words cannot express our sadness for such a loss of your mother.
"Teta" was so loved by our family and will always be remembered as a niece with a lovely smile.
Our prayers are with her and she will always be close to each and every one of you.

Joel, Sylvain , Celeste and my dear cousins
I cannot find the right words to express the regret I feel in acknowledging your loss, your dear mother, sister in law so soon after Daniel’s passing. I pray that in time only the wonderful memories will occupy your thoughts and the sadness will be locked away. I know that when I will think of Anita it will be of her beautiful smile.
