    my dearest ANITA,
    Easter Sunday March 31, 2024
    as usually I went to Flint, MI with my God-Family
    it was tough for me and of course I broke down
    crying because I know that I would’ve heard
    your voice on the telephone

    April 6/7 2024
    I watched WWE Wrestle Mania 40
    the 2 night events
    as Cody Rhodes defeated (your boy)
    the tribal chief Roman Reign
    for the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion belt,

    remember that it was you got me back watching WWE
    I got very emotional when Cody won and
    celebration with Brandi because I thought about us

    Anita Antoinette Jenkins
    I miss you so much
    and you’ll always be in my heart
    Always & Forever
    love, RAJI

    through the years and all those wonderful
    gifts that I sent to you too,

    I will never forget those 2 days that I visited you
    with my sister Tien
    at the Nursery Home in Monticello, Arkansas
    I brought you a Michigan bag full of gifts
    and took you to Red Lobster in Pine-Bluff, Arkansas

    I miss you so much
    I love you unconditionally
    I valued and thank you for our friendship
    that became so strong into relationship
    even many miles apart our hearts was together

    and you as A LADY your a QUEEN
    we didn’t needed any legal papers
    because our family & friends
    with the World

    Princess, life at Woods will never be the same without your presence. You were the youngest of the crew but we could tell right away that you ruled the roost with a firm grip handing out words of wisdom and knowledge. If we didn’t know something, immediately we would say “Let’s go ask Anita.”
    Take your rest and watch over us when you can.
    Odie Newburn; Woods Nursing Facility
    Brigitte Clark; your biggest fan Odie’s sister
