    Jim and Sally, was so sad to hear about Annie dying. She truly was bright adn sunny. When I think about her I remember her working in the green house and helping raise the puppies, all her selfless work at the farm and her beautiful pond she put in your front yard. I know you will truly miss her and I am so sorry. Please know you will be in my prayers, Judi
