    I too am a first cousin to Jarita and Cheryl. I remember going to their house and admiring at how beautiful Jarita was and how I hoped I would be half as beautiful as she and her sister were when I grew up, well that did not happen. I always looked up to Jarita and Cheryl since they were older and wiser than I was but I cherished every moment we had together. I visited her and Cheryl a couple of years ago in a restaurant and had a wonderful visit down memory lane. My sister, Sharon, and I also visited Jarita in her beautiful home in Bedford since she lived very close to my cousin, Marilyn Hunter. God bless her family. She will be missed but she was also very loved and a very loving spirit.

    Dear Jon and all family members, I, Sharon, am a 1st cousin to Jarita. I best remember Jarita and her sister Cheryl when they were in their teens. They would let us dress up in their pretty dresses and heels. 2 years ago Jarita, Cheryl, my sister Anita, and I met at a restaurant in Bedford. We spent 2 + hours recalling the past and visiting--It was wonderful. Recently, I chatted with Jarita a couple of times when she was in the nursing home. She will be missed and I am very sad she is gone. Love, Sharon and Darrell Pragel
