Aunt Annie, a smile & laugh that lights up a room. She was always happy and uplifting to those around her. Our family moved from Gary a long time ago, but that's our roots. And when I visited my family in Gary, we went to Buy-Lows, where my Aunt use to work, everyone and I mean everyone asked me if I was Aunt Annie's niece... They said she showed pictures of me and how much she loved her nieces and nephews. Aunt Annie was well- loved by the community,. She made a huge impact with the Gary school district's children who she assisted everyday. Aunt Annie gave her heart and soul to making sure children were safe and happy. She loved her children tremendously and her ex-husband Nick. She will be forever missed as the Aunt who wanted her niece,me to "Send me some of those sharp boots,niece! They look good on you"

AN ODE TO AN ANGEL IN FLIGHT, MY FRIEND ANNIE.:SEVEN FOR HEAVEN

The Number 7 biblically represents Perfection and Completion; I symbolize 7 roses with colors of red, white and yellow.
RED is for His Blood and his agape love;
You were, kind, gentle and showed love to us all.
Rest in Heavenly Peace dear friend; You have answered the Father’s call.
WHITE represents Eternal Loyalty;
Enter the Pearly gates; Your journey is over! You are home and Not Alone!!
Sang Hallelujah and dance around the Heavenly Throne!
YELLOW is for happiness and newness as the Dawn;
It is the color of the Sun and the hope of His Only Begotten Son;
To God be the Glory and May He Now say to you Annie, his servant, “Well Done”.
Condolences to the entire Scott Family from your neighbor, friends and extended family Frank McClatchey Clan Glindia, Gentry, Bobbie, Anna, Clarence, Johnny, Lois, Richard, Dorothy, Anthony, Debra, Danny and Crystal
