Annette’s sweet spirit served as an encouragement to those around her. God’s work here on this earth has suffered loss but heaven has received a special angel. W.A. and I pray that God will supply your needs in this time of loss. May you ever be found carrying on her example of faithfulness in the Lord’s work.

Diane and Family...
What a joy to have known your mother. She always had a smile and encouraged Linda and me when we were members of Antioch. Her life was exemplary of Jesus Christ. It was a privilege to have known her. Now that she is enjoying her heavenly reward, she has left a wonderful legacy for her children. Accept the legacy and be that person that you know of her.
Love to all.
