    I will miss sitting on the back stoop and talking with her. She had such interesting things to say. She was my favorite neighbor ever.

    Patrick and Roni, your mother was a precious lady. She always had a smile on her face no matter the circumstance. She was so loving and kind and really loved her mother in law which I admired in her. We loved having her in the family. Y’all are in our thoughts and prayers

    May you cherish your many loving memories of Anna, speak of her often, laugh with those who laugh and weep with those who weep. May you look forward to the day when God will end all our grief as the last enemy death is to be brought to nothing, 1 Corinthians 15:26. And Oh what a relief when we see the fulfillment of God's promise that sickness and death will cease and God will restore life to all who still live in his memory, Isaiah 33:24 and 26:19, Revelation 21:4. My heartfelt sympathy for your loss.
