I'm so sad to write this. I still can't believe it happened. I will miss Maritta although we've been many miles apart for many years. I can't remember when I first met Maritta. It seems like I've always known her. I think we got to know each other in the Beginner class in Sunday School. That's where the littlest ones hear a Bible story, and color a picture. Later on, she was a year behind me in school. We were raised in the same church and had the same Sunday School teachers. After high school, we went different ways -she went to Chicago and Las Vegas and I went to California and Virginia. We kinda stayed in touch through our mothers. And then one day our mothers were sharing the news of their daughters and discovered we both had moved to Arizona and lived a few blocks apart, not half a continent. We renewed our friendship and decided to do a daily walk from my house to the community coffee shop. We enjoyed a good cup of coffee and catching up on the events of the years we'd been a part. We had a beautiful setting, mostly wonderful weather, and continued our walks for several years until I moved back to Oklahoma. I still cherish many good memories of those morning walks and chats. RIP my friend, you are missed and loved.

So sorry to hear this bad news. I knew Maritta when she lived in Snyder, Okla and attended college with her at Altus Junior. She became my tutor for Algebra during that time. In fact she is probably the reason I was able to pass that class. A great gal with a great heart.
