Anita Arthur was a very special woman. Her family is my family, not by blood but by choice. I will remember her ability to make you laugh. She could drop a phrase like nobody else and she could make you belly laugh until your cheeks hurt. Her absence will be greatly felt but she has left a huge impression on everyone she came in contact with and she will be remembered well. My heart goes out to her family. I love you all. It was a blessing to know you Anita, we will meet again ❤❤

This family is so special to me. My deepest sympathies to her loving family.
I truly enjoyed Anita's spunk & positive attitude when she attended our Reiki Share. She was fun. I hoped she would keep attending. She brought a special feeling to the evening. It was a joy to be in her company. I wish I knew her better.
All my love to Tina & Christina.
