I learned of Anita's death just last night. She was a wonderful lady. Our priest just this past Saturday at Vespers reported that she was almost "strangely" up-beat about the upcoming surgery, that she was "eager to get on with it." It gives me hope that she was very spiritually prepared.
She was a very supportive participant in a Scripture class I taught, but was very up-front with me that what she felt she really needed was a good overview of Old Testament stories. I was looking forward to being able to offer something like that in the not too distant future, and to enjoying her participation.
Memory eternal! :-";"xx
