“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.”
“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is
made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast
in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

I thank the Lord that Ms. Anita shared her time with family and friends at my home Christmas 2021. She was so much fun, a happy personality and such a joy to be around. As we lit candles and sang praises to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Ms Anita lifted her voice expressing her love and compassion for the Lord with biggest smile ever. She was always close to us, that we felt like she was a part of our family. She was a gem, and will be greatly missed. And to the family, “May God’s repeated Blessings be yours”!
Words can never express how much you mean to me, my wife, my siblings, and my mother. You have been and always will be an important part of our lives, and we will cherish our memories shared with you forever. I love you godmommy. Rest peacefully in His arms.
