Anne was a special friend. I'm glad I got to know her through Idylwood Presbyterian Church, which she loved and served for many years. She was always bright and happy. I'm glad to think that she's been reunited with Lynn and is praising God at the foot of the throne. May she rest in peace.

I was so lucky to be able to spend time with Aunt Anne, Uncle Lynne and their girls when I was young. I especially loved the time at Rehoboth Beach. Aunt Anne was very kind and always made me feel welcome. I will always remember her smile and the kindness in her eyes. Debbie and Elaine, your mom was really special and will be missed. My prayers are with you all.

Your Mom was like a second Mom to me. She drove us everywhere and never complained. She made me separate food if I didn't want to eat what she was cooking. She was the kindest person ever. And, she always had good advice. Such a sunny personality! I know you will miss her greatly. I will always have fond memories.
