(Aneatra was more than a friend to most people she met. A lot of people that came into her life called her "mama." She was everyone's favorite person. If you ever had a bad day, Aneatra was always the person to go to. She always knew what to say and how to make you laugh. She was a very funny, smart, and loving women. If you were ever lucky enough to call her a friend, you knew she would always have your back. She was a women that everyone loved and looked up to. Only once in a lifetime does a wonderful person like Aneatra come along. If you knew Aneatra you knew how special she was and how lucky you are to have met her. She always helped anyone who was having a bad day or who was having a rough time. Aneatra opened her home to anyone in need and fed her kids and family before herself. She was an absolutely selfless women. Although she passed young, she touched so many lives. She left this world proudly knowing that there wasn't one person that needed her that she didn't help. As a mother she installed in us all her strength and loyalty. She held a great love for her sons. Aneatra was an outstanding mother and friend. She had a love and passion for animal's of all kinds. Whenever anyone had a problem they went straight to "mama Aneatra" for help. She was an absolute joy to be around. She guided her kids and loved ones with courage, wisdom, and generosity. Aneatra was always laughing and joking. No words could ever encapsulate what a wonderful women, mother, and friend she was. Her passing has left a huge hole in our hearts that can never be filled; but i pray over time that God will help us all heal until we see her smiling face again. Aneatra will certainly be forever missed! One thing is true we will keep her memory alive and strong with all the love, care, and wisdom she taught us. All the memories we shared and all the times she made us smile or laugh will never be forgotten. She will always live on through us; those she loved most.

We love you deeply Aneatra.
