I am sorry for your loss. Anita was a great person and I was shocked when I read the news. Anita and I went to high school together and the same church. She will be greatly missed.

So, so sorry to hear this terrible news! I knew Anita when I lifeguarded at a gym in Moline. Later when I was working in local hospitals, she remembered me and greeted me with a hug and such sincere warmth! We just recently reconnected on Facebook.
Such a kind, beautiful person. I’m so sorry for your loss and my deepest condolences go out to her family.

I watched the video, Wayne. What a beautiful couple they were. Looks as if they were the perfect match for each other – best friends.

Thank you for sharing Wayne. Such a great video of adventure and love gone too soon…so many tears as I watched the engagement. I have to check out his other videos of travel too.
