    While I know that Annette has gone to her Heavenly reward, and is walking the streets of gold with her beloved family members who preceded her there....I still cannot help but feel sorrow that a beautiful soul and light have gone from this world, leaving it darker. Annette's testimony of faith in her Lord was never dimmed by her suffering, as a matter of fact it shone brighter than ever. Always sweet....always patient....she taught me lessons in how to leave this world with dignity and peace which I will never forget. Rest well, my dear friend, and I pray that yours is one of the first faces I see when I reach the other side.
