Rachel, Jill , Chad and mark, what can I say... I just found out tonight and called Rachel, I'm so upset, I had no idea.
I still remember all the fun and vacations we took together. And going to krogers to buy her those pink snoball cupcakes! I will certainly say prayers for y'all and
Hope everyone is coping well, love y'all

TRIBUTE TO ANITA
Supposing you offered yourself completely and eagerly, joyously
spent yourself on something because you wanted to more than anything else in the whole wide world; and while doing it you suddenly found you were receiving something beyond anything you had ever experienced before, so that you didn't know whether you were giving or taking; that would be the beautiful state, the beautiful union, this wonderful thing we are trying to get hold of and are evolving toward.

"Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I thank my God upon all my remembrance of you, always in every supplication of mine on behalf of you all making my supplication with joy, for your fellowship in furtherance of the gospel from the first day until now; being confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Jesus Christ: even as it is right for me to be thus minded on behalf of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as, both in my bonds and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers with me of grace. For God is my witness, how I long after you all in the tender mercies of Christ Jesus. And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and all discernment; so that ye may approve the things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and void of offence unto the day of Christ; being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God." Philippians 1:2-11

MAY ANITA AND ALL THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED REST IN PEACE UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, AMEN.

To the woman who taught me the first song I ever learned on the piano (Heart and Soul!), thank you for memories. I'm honored to be singing for your service tomorrow, because the musical part of me is a direct result of your influence. Your Nephew, Gary.

She certainly was one of a kind. We called her Mac. She was cool before cool was a thing. We loved to spend parts of our summer vacation with her and the kids. Jimmy, my brother and her husband, was usually off shore when we went. In a time when kids had to create their own entertainment, that was probably for the best. We were probably a little wild with few rules and lots of freedom. That is just how she was, a real one of those free spirits. She will be missed. Love you, Mac. Peace and comfort to Jimmy, Rachel, Chad, Mark, and Jill and all the grandkids.

Sending our deepest sympathy and prayers to the family. She was a sweet loving person always. I worked for her in Real Estate back in the 70's. We also played bingo together. She will be deeply missed. She has become another one of Gods angels to watch over her family and friends. RIP My Friend.
