  4. If I didn’t know I’d see her again with Jesus, I’d be devastated. We talked long and much about Heaven. Happy days lie ahead for me when I see her again.

  7. She was such good friends with my Mom and I used to “sit” for you’ll when you all were younger. Ann fixed my hair for me for my Senior year for Prom night. Oh what fun and laughter we had. I thank God for all those precious memories. I know that she is visiting with my mom and dad now and that makes me smile. May God Bless you all and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  8. My deepest sympathy to all who knew and loved Ms Annie. We only communicated on FB, and I was drawn to her spirit. She graciously shared comments about her great grandchildren, which I loved to hear. I regret never meeting her and cherish the impact she made on me. There are times in your life when someone very special connects to your sole, Ms Annie was such a precious person.
