Not sure what to say?

In loving memory of such a wonderful lady. We will love you and miss you always. The Bain Family - Jeremy, Nicole, Jared & Emerson

In loving memory of a very special lady.

Mrs. Annie Mae was like a mother to me. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. A true "Southern Belle", a quite leader, compassion for others, a caring heart, a soft voice, and a bright light in the darkness. "All my Father giveth unto me shall come to me" She is with Jesus in a place our Lord called Paradise. May God richly bless her family is our prayer.

So sorry to hear about Annie Mae. Prayers for the family. She will be missed by all that knew her

Sending my sympathy to the family. May our Heavenly Father bring you comfort and peace.

Love and prayers from Randy and Rhonda Perry and friends.

Annie Mae has always been so helpful to me as a Fellow Clerk. She always stood up for what she felt was right for the Clerk's Offices. She will be missed greatly. Praying for peace and comfort for her family.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
