Not sure what to say?

Anne was such a sweet lady with a kind and loving Heart.
I have a lot of special memories of her and her dedication to the Chamber of Commerce and working with my Dad (Jake ) in numerous events.
My prayers are with each of you during this time.

Anne and her sister were two lovely ladies I am so fortunate to have met about 18 years ago. So sorry for your loss.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. I enjoyed singing beside Anne in the choir at WOL....she had such a pretty/strong alton voice. May she now sing in Heaven's choir w/no restrictions.
