  1. My most sincere condolence go out to Ms. Anita and her wonderful extended family. She will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Though sympathy alone can't alter facts, it can help to make them more bearable. We understand death only after it has placed its hands on someone we love. Some say Tears are the silent language of grief. I'm sure "Anita" would want all of her family to think of all the wonderful times that were spent together, knowing she is in a better place now. She will continue to watch over all of you and you will feel her presence through the coming years.

    God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put His arms around you and whispered, "Come to Me."

    With tearful eyes we watched you as you slowly slipped away, And though we loved you dearly we couldn't make you stay.

    Your golden heart stopped beating, your tired hands put to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. May Anita R.I.P.

  2. May God's Grace's shine upon you as you enter eternal rest. May the love and memories comfort your loved ones. Thank you for being a wonderful soul and friend too many.

  3. My deepest and most sincere thoughts of sympathy to all those who loved this wonderful woman. All her Daughters, Son, Sister, Grand and Great-Grand Children. I know that over time your fond memories will bring you comfort and peace to all of you. You lost a special and caring person, but God gained another angel to add to his heavenly fold. Blessings to all and may "Anita" R.I.P.

    Nothing you love is lost. Not really. Things, people they always go away sooner or later. You can't hold them anymore than you can hold moonlight. But if they've touched you, if they're inside you, then they're still yours. The only things you ever really have are the ones you hold inside your heart.

    Anita, if we could bring you back again, For one more hour or day, We'd express all our unspoken love; We'd have countless things to say.

    If we could bring you back again, We'd say we treasured you, And that your presence in our lives Meant more than we ever knew.

    If we could bring you back again, To tell you what we should, You'd know how much we miss you now, And if we could, we would. R.I.P.

  4. My most sincere condolences go out to the Family of my very dear and close friend, Anita. O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of thy servant Anita Little and grant her an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of thy saints; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

    SAFELY HOME

    I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
    Oh so happy and so bright!
    There is perfect joy and beauty
    In this everlasting light.
    All the pain and grief is over,
    Every restless tossing passed;
    I am now at peace forever,
    Safely home in Heaven at last.
    Did you wonder I so calmly
    Trod the valley of the shade?
    Oh, but Jesus' love illumined
    Every dark and fearful glade.
    And He came Himself to meet me
    In that way so hard to tread;
    And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
    Could I have one doubt or dread?
    Then you must not grieve so sorely,
    For I love you dearly still,
    Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
    Pray to trust our Father's will.
    There is work still waiting for you,
    So you must not idly stand;
    Do it now, while life remains,
    You shall rest in Jesus' land.
    When that work is all completed,
    He will gently call you Home;
    Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
    Oh, the joy to see you come !

  5. My most sincere Sympathy go out to all the family of Ms. Anita, especially to my adopted loving family, the Freeman's. Jason, Tonya, Bub, Jeremy, Jonathon (Whitney) & Jessica.
    Hold fast to your memories and they will sustain you in these difficult days ahead. Know that Anita is at peace and smiling down on all of you. May the memories you hold dear be a comfort to you. Your family's love for you will always fly high by your side, as your love for them will always stay deeply planted in their hearts, till one day you will all embrace each other once again. May you rest in peace Anita, and your family find peace.
    23rd. Psalm
    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
    Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. Amen

  6. My deepest condolences to Ms. Anita and her extended family. My very dear friend who will truly be missed by all who had the pleasure of making her acquaintance. May she R.I.P.

    Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glint on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain.

    When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft starlight at night.

    Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die. Amen

  7. What a beautiful soul!! You were such a bright light in my life!! So grateful for your love and caring for all these years!!! You will forever be in my 💓!!!

    Remembering
    Anita Dronnet Little
    APRIL 28, 1943 – FEBRUARY 22, 2023

    TOGETHER AGAIN

    Together again
    My tears have stopped falling
    The long lonely nights
    Are now at an end

    The key to my heart
    You hold in your hand
    And nothing else matters
    We're together again

    Together again
    The gray skies are gone
    Your back in my arms
    Now where you belong

    The love that I knew
    Is living again
    And nothing else matters
    We're together again

    And nothing else matters
    We're together again

  15. Jason and Family, I am deeply saddened by the loss of your Mother. She will be truly missed and I will include her in my daily prayers. No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that your mother, Anita is now resting in the arms of our Lord. A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Prayers and fond memories are what we have to remember Anita. May the soul of the dearly departed rest in peace, may our prayers help guide her on her journey to our Creator. Anita, your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. R.I.P.

  16. To Anita’s family, I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. She worked for me at Theriot’s in Westlake. She was such a hard worker that always had a smile on her face. I’ve thought often of her since the store closed and my memories always ended with a smile on my face. R I P Anita you’re in my prayers 🙏🙏🙏
