From the time I was old enough to walk I've known Ann as"MomMaw", She will forever be loved and remembered for the beautiful person she was and the kind soul she had, through out the years almost 30 of them she became family and was like a grandmother to me, im going to miss the memories made and shared with her but they will always be with me. She had the heart of an angel and anytime you stepped into her home you always felt the warmth and love that filled the house. She will forever hold a place in mine and my family's heart for the memories we all have, I love you MomMaw. May you rest in peace for eternity with the good Lord. I pray that God watch over the family during this time, you're in our thoughts and prayers.

From the first moment we met Dear Annalee she made us feel loved and part of her family. We always loved our time with her and she would share her chair with Roy. She was always so kind, considerate and loving to all. We called her “Mom” and she was just like a mom to us. She will truly be missed so very very much and never forgotten but I know where she is at and I know she loves her new home in heaven.

When I was little Mommaw and I used to go on daily picnics after school and talk about how our days went. Recently she would call me everyday after I got home from work to make sure I made it home safely because she didn’t like me driving home late at night. We always shared little secrets and had our own inside jokes. She was always someone who could put a smile on your face with the simplest words.
