Dear Timothy, Barbara and family,

Sal and I were your neighbors for several years at Wolcott Hill Condos in Wethersfield. My sincerest condolences on Anita's passing. She was always such a happy, upbeat and friendly person. I always enjoyed talking to one or both of you in the lobby where you often sat and greeted everyone as they came and went. May your memories of Anita give you strength throughout the coming days, weeks and months.
