To the family,
I knew Anna Mae when I was a child. My parents, Russel and Helen Brooke were best friends with Anna Mae and her parents. We went on many trips together to the cabin in the Pocono Mountains. We always had a lot of fun with Anna Mae, she was a sweetheart! She was a wonderful caring friend, and I will miss her.

I worked with Ann Mae at Boscovs's. It was my first job out of High School in 1985 and I was nervous, but she made me feel comfortable and helped me. I remember she loved Englebert. I talked about her a lot thru the years. She was a sweet lady and funny.

I want to express to you my most heartfelf sympathy. Anna Mae will be missed. I feel privileged to have known her since 1968, when she and my mother got together and became best friends, shortly after my fathers death. I hope that you can find some comfort in you many special memories of her.

Dear Randy and Family

I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother and Grandmother.

Your Mother was the best friend anyone could have. I met her while she worked with me at Boscov's. The day she retired from there I felt a loss and missed our lunches together--But nothing like the loss I feel today. She had a heart of gold, always had a smile on her face and full of laughs. She was like a big sister to me, she always had time to listen to my problems and seem to have the right words and advice to make me feel better.

I will miss our many phone conversations--especially the ones about Monday night TV. We would always try to guess who the Bachelor would pick to be his wife--most of the time we would agree and most of those times we were wrong.

But I do know one thing and that is that GOD has picked a wonderful, kind hearted, loving lady, to be one of his special angels to watch over all of us that she has left behind, till we meet her again.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers and I will hold lots of special memories of Anna Mae in my heart and she will never be forgotten. May she rest in peace

With Sympathy
Ruth and Bill Graul

Anna Mae was a dear and loving friend for over 30 years. It was a blessing to have her in my life. There will be so many things that I will miss. The way she made you feel special, her child like excitement of every holiday, wonderful letters about her family and sharing our birthday together.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May God keep you in his care. Anna Mae's loving spirit and special memories will live in our hearts forever.
Sincere Sympathy,
