    To Robert and Patricia, Our hearts go out to you in this time of loss - your spoke so lovingly of your sister. She herself helped me understand my own sister's illness, of the same cause. May God's grace comfort you, and she journeys to her next destination. Your neighbors, Carol and Burt

    Richard & Barbara Pace says:
    We only knew Anna for the past three years (neighbors), but we loved her from the beginning. She always had a big smile for us and loved to pick on Richard. Of course he picked on her too. She would leave little gifts on our front porch every now and then. Just this past Easter she put one of those little plastic bunnies that lays eggs on the front porch. Our daughter, her husband and our granddaughter were visiting and we got the biggest laugh out of it. Our granddaughter thought the Easter Bunny left it. We will miss seeing her working in her yard, walking Miss B and going over to chat with her about the funny things in life. We will always remember and love her.
