October 14, 2007 / WILMA WILLIAMS (MOM)
Dear Rita, I'm sitting downstairs on a Sunday evening and I just started to cry for you, I miss your voice and your laugh so much. I just want to see you again, my heart still misses you so much. I don't why this happened, why my child is gone and I can't hear her voice anymore, this is so hard, I just want you to come back so bad, life isn't the same, daddy doesn't care about anything anymore, not even his health, I don't what to do, I'll watch your tape even though it make me cry so much. Please Rita, Mommy misses and you and needs you so much. I love you, my dear child, my poor innocent child. I hope to see you again when I leave this earth but until then whoever did this to you has broken my heart. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, LOVE FOREVER AND EVER MOMMY. Close

Happy Belated Birthday / Karla Bierbach (Good Friend )
Hey Rita Boo...sorry I missed your birthday..lame excuse, but I was not able to get to a computer...so technically I didn't miss it...just a late "card" for you. I miss you girl and I thought about you all day yesterday, but you're safe up there...
Anyways, I can't talk much, I am in class (and should maybe be paying attention). I just wanted you to know I didn't forget about you. I miss and love you Rita!

I Pray Everyday For You / WILMA WILLIAMS (MOM)
I pray everyday that the Lord will reveal things to us that you already know, about who could have done this horrible thing to you, we are getting closer to the truth and I just ask God for Patience because Rita you know that me and you don't have much. LOL. I love you little girl when I see people walking down the street especially teenage girls I think of you, it's crazy but many times I wish it was you, just coming back home and all of this is just a terrible nightmare. Well Molly, I Love You, I Miss You, and I just want you next to me. I pray the good Lord is taking care of you and that you are looking after me, Daddy, Sabrina and Little Harry. I Love You, Mommy oxoxoxoxoxo Close
love you Rita, Love Ashley Doyle / Ashley Doyle (1 of her best friends )

Just thinking... / Karla Bierbach (Close Friend )
Hey girl, I know it has been awhile, but I was just at Ashley's the other day and we were talking all about you...just everything. I miss you, but I am confident that what I heard may be true and you are possibly able to rest in peace finally. I could say much more...I'd probably get mad and curse at the screen though, but you know what I am thinking. I just miss you..lol, good times! I love you Rita Close
Sherita, you have been on my mind! I have been praying for Justice!
This world we live in... gets crazier everyday! God knows. The bible says in Numbers 32:23 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out. God knows what happened on Novemeber 28th 2003, He wasn't in shock by what was happening. He was completely in control. Psalm 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him
In his time, he will reveal everything, I believe down to the minutes. Whether we are on the mountain top or in the valley, God is still good. Whether we understand His choices, God is still good.
I am sure right now, Sherita is chillin in her mansion, just finishing up breakfast with Jesus, waiting to hang out with Esther and hear again how she helped save her people from the king. I am sure she is just overwhelmed in happiness as she roams around heaven on those golden streets. If she could tell you anything right now, I bet she would say, if you only knew the time I am having!!! Amen! One glorious day, only by his grace, I'll see you there~
For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee Isaiah 41:13
11 Corinthians 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
My Beloved Daughter / WILMA WILLIAMS (Mother)
Hey Rita, I'm stressing all the time for some reason right now, I miss you more right now. I am continuing to pray its all over soon, in my gut I feel it will be. Time is just flying by, daddy and I went to the cemetary on Friday it felt good to be there, I just sat on a bench and look at your gravesite, feeling comfort I was nearer to you at that moment. Something is going to happen soon Rita and then this nightmare will be over for us, but not the pain of losing you, I love you so much and was so glad Sabrina finally wrote to you, but it takes time for some people, we'll I have to go now, Missing and Loving you forever and forever, Mommy oxoxoxoxo Close
Hey SIS / Sabrina Thomas (Sister)

I just want to let you know that I love you and miss you soooooo much. Love ya Big sister Beenah Close

**Dear Mrs. Wilma** / Ashlei B. (Always Always close friends )
Hello Wilma, I was recently on Sherita's memorial page, reading and writing my own feelings, and I decided to write you as well. Its Ashlei Bernstein, I hope you still remember me :) I used to live across from you guys on Gross Ave.
I just want to offer support and love to you, Harry, Sabrina, and little Harry. I miss all of you. I can only imagine what everything has been like to deal with through all of this. I think about all of you alot, more than you think. I think about Rita everyday, at least for 5 mins. I feel very guilty because when I moved, Rita and I lost touch. I wish I couldve had more time with her. We were always very close, and your family was always very warm and inviting to me. Thank you for that.
Its very disturbing that nothing has been closed, that this is still open and a mystery. Its frusterating, and it makes peace much harder to obtain. Please write me back, if its not too hard, and update me on whats been going on, not just with this, but you and how you are and how the fam is. I work in Camden, and on my lunch break today I actually drove by the old house on Gross Ave, and then drove by your house. Dont take this the wrong way, but Rita is all over that house. I just felt it. I miss you and I miss her.
I wish.. / Ashlei B. (Always Always close friends )
Dear Rita, I miss you. You always made me smile. I wish we couldve had more time together. I will always remember laughing with you, all of our jokes, you doing my hair, us chillin at the park, our sleepovers, walkin to Rita's to get water ice(that was like, our favorite thing to do in the summer, lol) Even though you were younger than me, it didnt matter. We were on the same level. When I moved, we lost touch. Im sorry for that. I thank GOD sooo much for that last day that I saw you when i came back to Pennsauken to visit you. That was the last time I saw you. I remember it being sooo important to me, because that was the day that I saw you all grown up. You grew into such a beautiful girl, oh my god. I remembered you before when you were only 11 or 12. You definetely grew into your beauty. As I write this, its very hard to hold back tears. That day you gave me some recent pictures of you. I have them in my room, and i literally look at them everyday. I still have that stuffed animal that you signed for me before I moved to TWP. Its very sentimental to me, because about 10 ppl signed that dog, and YOUR MESSAGE "ILL MISS YOU" AND YOUR NAME WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT STAYED ON IT ALL THESE YEARS. All of the other names faded. Its very odd, but I think it was meant to be like that. I have saved every single newspaper clipping that has to do with you. I want so badly to go and see your family. I dont know what to say or how to act. It doesnt mean that I think about how they are, and wish them comfort and peace, even though thru all of this, that is very hard. I miss your mom the most. I want to know what happened to you. You were too young. But you were too good for this world. You're shining your light down on us now.
I MISS YOU. I LOVE YOU. ... I'll see you again some day... Love, Ash xoxooxoxox Close
Sherita, I'm always on your website everyday, just want to say I love and miss you dearly, we are planning another march, but don''t worry your case will be solved. The family is still the same, missing you and trying to cope. We have problems, but I believe when your case is solved, much of the stress in this family will go away. i'm just sitting her thinking about you and how you use to walk down that hallway upstairs, always there, always comfortable in your house, comfortable in your bedroom. I love you so much and still can't after all this time believe you are gone, I guess I'm selfish but I want you back home here. I often think about whay you would be doing if you were still here, I know one thing for sure, you would have been sharp, cause you were always together. (you know what I mean), well until next time Molly, I Love You, I Miss You and certainly will never Forget You. Love Mommy
2007 Memorial Walk In Your Honor / Vicky Thomas (Aunt)Read >>
2007 Memorial Walk In Your Honor / Vicky Thomas (Aunt)
Hi Rita, We are once again having another Justice for Peace walk in your honor. The walk will take place on June 23, 2007 at 2pm. Same location and time. I hope your case is solved soon so this can be our last walk in your honor. Its been almost 4 years and nobody has been arrested and convicted for your crime. I'm hoping 2007 is the year for that.
My family is okay and everyone loves and misses you so much. Its very hard to believe that you're not with us anymore. but we all know your case will be solved soon.
My prayers are with you and your mom, dad, sabrina and lil harry (he's not so little anymore, harry got real tall). And I know I will see you again in Heaven.
Today is a weird day. I have so much on my mind. When I go to Church on Sundays my mind is relaxed and I am content with my life. It is rare that I have a depressing monday but I guess today is an exception. It is odd because I had Church on Sat and Sun, I stayed up late to listen to my worship tapes, and I actually slept quite peacefully. I have sooo much to worry about Rita. It is overwhelming!! I am excited about our walk on June 2nd! i miss you and nothing can bring you back but when we come together and honor your name, it helps ease the pain. I know once your case is solved, we will no longer walk but your birthday and anniversary will be celebrated for the rest of my life. Jared's mother passed away on Sat. I feel so bad and I ask that you make a special request to send peace and love his way. The funeral is Thurs. John and I are going and he needs your strength to get him through this. Ty turned one last week!! I didn't treat him any differently because he threw up on my bed and bedroom floor on Tuesday! He is out of control. Your mother decided to leave town on Mother's Day. She thinks she is grown! I will be around more come Sept. Anyway, I have to go to class. I miss you Sherifah and will love you always always!! P.S: I love him very much Rita. I want to be with him so do not let me act on impulse and ruin everything. Please!!
My name is Rhonda Kerley, I am a mother of three grown children and a grandmother. I have a daughter 25 graduating from college today. I thought about my daughter and how much I love her and I wished Sherita was here graduating from college also. I was looking at websites about missing children and a story that touched my heart was this story and the story of the 2 teenage girls who were murdered. Reading this tribute made me cry and long to talk about the way this sad world is today. I read all these tributes and I was touched and saddened by this story. I wish our world was free of violence and heartache. I just want you all to know that I pray for your family and your friends and I hope that one day this will all be a passing memory and we will all see each other in a better place. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers. Mommy you touch me with your thoughts and I pray that God will ease your pain and you will see your daughter again with a beautiful smile as I see her on her beautiful photos. God bless you all.
Hey Rita! Mommy sits here in life and deals with all of the problems people are having and nothing compares to me losing my daughter at only 16. It just amazes me that Lil Harry will be 16 in August the same age you were when you left. I haven't heard any good news from Marty just the same old crap, so we will again plan your march for June 9, 2007 Me and Aunt Vicky will get the fliers together and start putting things in motion, was really praying we would not have to plan another march that your case would be solved, but again the prosecutors office has failed. We'll i'm getting a little teary eyed right now because no one seems to understand me wanting you back with me. I Love you Sherita, will always love you and will see what this future brings and I know when it's all over, I will see your beautiful face again. Love you with all my heart Mommy oxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
