I met Annette in high school for the first time. She is so beautiful, sweet, caring person. She loved the Lord and he was in her daily life.
I never saw her without a sweet smile and her first words were how are you doing, how's your family sit down and lets talk awhile. If it was close to eating time she would invite you to eat with her. She and her husband Brooks were a good couple.
Annette was close to all her family and loved each one of them. I can't think of any unkind word she ever said. She was as sweet as her smile. I really loved being around her and ask for prayers for her whole family. I'm sorry I can't be there because I moved to Georgia five years ago and it's an 8 1/2 hour drive from my home.
Love to all her family,
Faye Cox

Annette was the first person who met us at the door at Christ the Rock. She said “ I don’t do handshakes, I do hugs. “ Always a smile on her face, a touch, a prayer or praise from her lips. Willing to listen and help share the burden with you. What a wonderful legacy she has left! Many, many people were touched and changed for the better thru her. Our hearts grieve with you, but rejoice, that she is now in Heaven hearing “Well done good and faithful servant.” We look forward to seeing Brooks and you again, in Heaven. Love and hugs to the family.

It is not often that someone comes along that seems so angelic and beautiful and you have an immediate connection . . Nan did that for me! Your family was so blessed to have her in your lives and mine was enriched so much by her radiance and love. I know you all will miss her presence but also know she is where she belongs....among the angels! We love you and are praying for your peace and comfort!❤️
