I’ve known Anita over 15 years and worked side by side with her during our nursing careers. Anita would speak of her family frequently and the bond she shared was unbreakable. She loved her family with all her ❤️. Losing Anita is devastating to all. I’m going to miss her infectious beautiful smile and her laughter I’ll never forget. Anita was a faithful servant and would give to anyone in need without hesitation. That was her nature always giving to others. Although our hearts are broken, we all have special memories of you as you have touched all our lives. We’ll never forget you my dear beautiful friend. I thank God we crossed paths and I’ll see you again one day. Love you Anita🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️❤️❤️💔💔💔

My name is Vanessa and I was a home healthcare nurse whom took care of Fernando. I came to treasure my friendship with Anita and her family. Her compassion for her family was top. She would give the shirt on her back for someone in need. I was so proud when she wet on to be a nurse as she could provide care for others. It was in her soul. I love you Anita and look forward to meet again on earth paradise. May you Rest In Peace my friend.
