There are no words to express my love & appreciation for our friendship. We shared good & bad times, & Nita was always there. She helped me through the loss of my husband & made sure I didn’t spend too much time alone, including taking me to Dallas to adopt a kitty which turned into two from their grandkids. I knew nothing about Precious Moments but learned, & we took a trip to the chapel. There are so many memories, & I am thankful for each & every one.
We know we are sending prayers to your family during this difficult time. Nita was a wonderful sister in Beta Sigma Phi. She always has a smile and a kind word for everyone.
Please Rest In Peace,
Alice & Bruce Barry
