The world has surely lost a wonderful lady but her life was full and suffering is no longer, she is smiling down upon us surrounded by her loved ones. Annie you are in my thoughts and prayers today as your mom has been over the past couple of weeks. I know that this is a difficult time for you but take comfort knowing that mom and dad are now reunited.

My memories of your mom are all good…delightful and yet feisty…smiling and determined….her way was always the best..but she was a loving gentle soul at heart. We will truly miss her. Take and God bless!
