    What a wonderful description of Annie’s life here on earth! Despite her many trials, one thing that never waivered was her love of the Lord. Up to the end, she recited scripture and prayed for those of us in need. I cannot imagine the joy she must now be feeling to be ever with her best friend, Jesus, assured, at last, that she is HIS. To Amanda, Theresa, and family, we share the pain of your loss, and our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Although we did not personally know Annie, we knew of her deep love for her Savior through her sister, Debbie. Even with all her life struggles, Annie was a courageous fighter and tried to serve others the best she could. She is now at peace and enjoying her eternal kingdom. To her family, we send our condolences and pray that our Heavenly Father comfort all of you during this most difficult time. Amanda, may God wrap His loving arms around you and protect you always.
