    Greg, I can’t imagine the mix of emotions you must be dealing with at this time. Please let us know if there is anything that we cam assist you with down the road. Anita’s spirit will live on through you and your son. I only had the opportunity to meet your wife a couple of times, but her passion for life, her family and her profession was amazing. She is with God now and her pain is gone. I hope you will soon be able to release your grief to God as well and let him soothe the pain you and your family are experiencing. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your son.

Mary you were the best mother to her and she loved you so much. Please know she will never be forgotten.

    Mr.Bergman and Family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. I don’t know your family and I didn’t know Anita, but I work at the hospital and from the amount of visitors with you and your family I can tell she touched so many lives and so many people loved her. No one knows why these things happen, but I hope you find some comfort in God and the memories you have of Anita.

    I am very sorry for your loss. I met Anita at the hospital. I was shocked when I heard that she had passed. She had such a beautiful spirit, I am sure that there will be many people who feel this great loss. I have met very few people who have had her courage and strength. I will continue to pray for you and your family. God bless.

    Anita was a special lady and will be missed by all that knew her. I am a nurse at her doctor’s office. We didn’t know each other well but her life and death touched me greatly!
    May she rest in peace and may her family find some peace as well!

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new surveys are added- checkbox and from now on if a comment is added I am four emails concentrating on the same comment. Can there be any way you’ll be able to eliminate me from that service? Thanks!
