It is with deep sadness and heartfelt love that I read of Vanita's passing. I know she will be missed so much not only by her family, but by anyone she came in contact with. I have throughly enjoyed serving Vanita, Keith, and their family over the many years at Dimitri's Restaurant. They always brightened my work day with their laughter and love. I also have a kitty that I got from them and I always refer to Vanita as her human grandma...whenever she was in Vanita would always inquire about Misty (cat). We also have memories of the Reed Family being on our son's paper route ( back in the day) and they were always one of the most kindest and generous people he did business with. Thank you Becky for coming into tell me your Mom's time was near. While that was hard to hear, I felt honored to be praying for her and the family. Vanita was a beautiful woman inside and out. Much love and continued prayers to you all. Most Sincerely, Barb & Steve Rideout

I was saddened to read of the passing of Vanita. She was such a nice lady. My condolences to her entire family. I'm sure Keith was waiting to welcome her into heaven.
