Claude, This is sad news! So often I think of the special times we all enjoyed at SRUMC. Those were good. Not many of us left! Just wanted to let you know you and Lew are in my thoughts and prayers. Anne will be missed.

Claude, What wonderful memories we have of Anne and you next door while on Nottingham Rd! Anne was forever making Mary Lou and me feel so welcome as new comers to Roanoke! You and your Appalachian connections were forever bringing light and power back to our neighborhoods which made what could have been a long day or night much shorter! We will always cherish our memories of Anne and hope to see you again soon! Unfortunately we are away in Atlanta where we have a small second home to enjoy our family, grown kids and grandkids! I can only image how Anne and you have enjoyed those grandkids and great grandkids over the years! Peace be with you and your entire family! Stewart and Mary Lou
