We are so sorry for your loss Aunt Anne was a good lady. I have a lot of memories of her and uncle Freddy.

Sad to see the passing of your mother. Mrs Kittrell was a patient of mine for years. Always so nice and just a wonderful lady. She and I worried for years with the realization that she had true “ dry mouth “. But she persevered and kept her teeth ( quite often people with zerostomia eventually lose them.) What a trooper she was.
Just wanted you all to know your mother had a fan club at my office. People like Mrs Kittrell are few and so appreciated.

The example of a Christian couple was epitomized in Anne and Fred Kittrell. We loved both of them but especially Anne. She was such a loving, kind, caring, gentle soul. Our condolences to your family.

Anne was such a gentle, gracious lady. We first met at Stone River Church when we moved to Murfreesboro in 1972. Over the years our interactions have always been so pleasant and refreshing. I have missed seeing her at North Blvd for all these months she has been hospitalized. We all know she is one of God's children and so is safe and secure. May the hole in your hearts that her death leaves heal, but may you always treasure her memory.

We got to know Anne and Fred when their granddaughter Laura married our son Joe in 2000. We have such fond memories of our time with them. Anne and my mom stayed in touch all these years, and it was a joy to have her as part of our family. Her gentle, thoughtful kindness will be missed, but wonderful memories live on.

Aunt Anne was the definition of a southern lady. She was so very gracious to everyone, and always looked like she had stepped out of a bandbox! Tony and I send our love and sympathy to all the family.

Dear Family of this precious lady - may God's comfort and peace be yours this day and each day. Miss Anne was such a special lady, one with kindness and gracious heart. I had lost contact with your family after I left North Blvd. yet every time I would go by their old house on E. Northfield, I would think of both her and Mr. Fred -may they now be seated with our Lord. With Love and respect, Reta Parton Barney

Anne was so wonderful and kind. I will never forget that as a student at MTSU. She and Dr. Kittrell were so gracious to have many students as guests in their home. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this
sad time. Dan Sissom

To all of Anne's children: Your mom was a blessing and inspiration to me. I am so glad she was my neighbor for a while. Sometimes I still see an iris that she planted in the ground between our houses. Ross and I send much sympathy to you and pray that you will find peace and comfort.
