You took me as your play daughter as soon as we met. You had been on my mind heavy these last few weeks & I had all intentions of calling Vernishia to check on you & it slipped my mind. I comes into work today to learn of your passing which has hurt my heart. My heart goes out to Papa Ernest & family. I will always remember your pleasant voice & beautiful smile. Wow my heart is truly saddened, prayers to you all. God bless

To the family of Mrs Anna Kate Stanford, I was so sorry to hear of her passing. I am sorry I will not able to attend the services, but please know I am praying for your strength and courage to get you through this difficult time

I will forever remember Mrs. Stanford as one of the sweetest ladies I've ever known. Our families have been connected in many ways. I have several fond memories from weekends I spent at your house with Adrean when we were younger. I was fortunate enough to be able to spend some time with you when my cousin was visiting Charlotte a couple of years ago. You will be dearly missed Sweet Lady. I know Adrean got her shining light from you and her light is shining a little brighter being able to see you again!
