Dear Walter, Justin and Naomi,
We are so sad to hear that Anita passed away. She was a wonderful woman and loved you all so much. In the 10 years or so that we were neighbors she was so full of life and joy and I was privileged to hear all about you and the rest of her family. It was a special thing to be able to go to BSF with her and to be able to discuss all we learned together. She loved the LORD and how thankful she was for the gifts he gave her in you and in her little grandson. I only heard of the new baby when you called Walter - I am sure that was the icing on the cake for her. We are praying for strength for all of you as you go through this difficult week. I will miss her. May God bless you and give you direction as you go on without her.
Joe and Jenny Jager
