Anita was a wonderful soul, loving and loyal to her family, friends, but most impotantly God. Her love and fear of the Lord is what kept her strong. She will be greatly missed. Our dearest condolences to you all. As she once said to me, "God is with me, God loves me, and I will be okay ".
With love Gloribel Espinoza and family.

I will always remember our neighbor time and the great friendship that my parents and my in/laws had with Louis and Annie. Our deepest condolences to her kids and a special hug to my childhood and still very good friend Cynthia. You will forever be in our hearts Annie, but I already see you partying with all who went before you. Give all our Wilkes St. Family a hug for me 😢❤️
