Anita and I used to wait for the bus together when we attended Sligo. She was one of my first friends in the U.S. Her death so soon after the last reunion I attended was heartbreaking for me. She loved all things Celtic/Gaelic, especially the songs. Her husband and daughter were her life. She is missed greatly.

Anita did not actually graduate from Northwood, but she did attend NHS and always considered herself part of our high school even though she officially graduated from Springbrook HS. Anita and I lived on the same street growing up and we spent alot of time together. We lost touch after she moved to the White Oak area, but we re-connected shortly before her death. She died in a car accident when her family was taking her daughter back to Frostburg College. Her husband and daughter survived the crash, but Nita did not. She was one of the most creative people I know and proud of her Scottish heritage. She loved to write, had a book of prose printed, played music, and enjoyed making all kinds of crafts. I'm grateful that we were able to re-connect. Many thanks to Melanie S. for making that possible.
