    We are so sorry for your loss! I met Marita when we worked together at Dollar General. She was so fun to work with! She was down to earth, and so easy to talk to. She had a wonderful sense of humor! You are so right saying that she was one of a kind! I would run into her from time to time, after we worked together, and it was always nice to visit with her. She would often talk of her boys, she loved you both so much, and was so proud of you! Scott, she loved you, too. You truly were her other half! Rest in peace, Marnita, you will be missed!

    Sean, I'm so sorry to hear about Momma. She was definitely one of a kind, and always willing to do anything in her power to help. She was always so good to me and the kids. We'll miss you Momma!! πŸ’”πŸ’”
