  1. Anita always had a smile for everyone. It was a joy to sing with her in the Early Riser and Sanctuary choirs. She will be missed.

  2. Anita was such a Precious Person to know and I feel blessed to have known her!
    She loved the Early Rrisers Choir and the Sanctuary Choir. Difficult to express the magnitude that she will be missed. Such a void ❤️💗

  3. My name is Meredith Kathleen and I am Ron and Anita’s youngest daughter- dad’s “baby girl,” he would laughingly call me at times. I’d like to think all of you for your kind words about my parents. My father was the best father any girl could ask for, and my stepmother took me on as her own child when I was a fourth grader. And I am now almost 50. Wonderful beautiful souls, both of them. This tragedy was so shockingly horrific to all, and described by all- including myself- as “out of character. “ all who knew my father knew him to be a humanitarian and a giant among men, one who was respected and admired by all who knew him. Within the community and his church home, as well as within our family, my dad and stepmother devoted all of their time attention and love to development of individual lives. I welcome the opportunity to speak with each of you more individually, if you are available and willing, it would be very much appreciated. Please contact me at Our family thanks you tremendously for all of your love, kind words and support during this difficult time of healing and working our way through grief. Truly, they will forever remain in our hearts and souls as two of the greatest blessings ever known- to any of us – in our lives.

  4. It’s been nearly 3 years and I am missing you so much this Christmas grandma.
    My fiancé you never got to meet and I made it up to Utah.
    Buttons has been loving the canyons and the snow and ice. The terrier has really come out since she left texas!
    Grandma you taught me how to be a man and losing you has been so hard. I of course hate the way you were taken from all of us…
    I’m trying to put 2/18/20 behind me but all I can think of sometimes is the call from Uncle Tom until the time a day or two later when it hit me what happened while I’m Stoppit’s front yard.
    It is a tremendous burden to carry.
    There’s nothing I wouldn’t do to have you spend just one more Christmas with me. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do to at least tell you goodbye, and what you meant to me, and what a wonderful person you were during your time on Earth. I miss you so much grandma and the world just hasn’t been the same without you.

  5. Hi Grandma,
    It’ll be 4 years on the 18th since you were taken away.
    I still think about the times we’d talk about an issue I was having.
    You’d give me advice that sometimes was rhetorical, and sometimes would be actionable and concrete.
    You never failed to give your love and support.
    I miss you, we all you miss you.
    So much has happened since I last saw you, but I carry you with me through it all.
    I remember you telling me how you were still tall enough to karate chop kneecaps after I stood up next to you, and, for the first time, I was taller than you.
    I remember how talented of a singer and cook you were, and how hard you worked to put a smile on our faces.
    It’s been 4 years and you’re still missed, and you always will be.

    Evan Meyer
    • Evan- your words are poignantly beautiful in their accuracy – and painfully bittersweet. Your grandmother is so glad that her efforts to give you such a firm foundation to stand upon as your own man were not in vain and she loves you with all her heart. Continue to carry on and go forward with your journey in life as you keep her memory alive in your thoughts and actions. Love always ~ Aunt Mere
