Annabelle was the most loving and giving person I ever met. She loved her family and her Lord with all of her heart and she will be missed terribly by those who loved her. My deepest sympathy goes out to her children and their families. She is going to be a wonderful addition to those streets of Gold when she passes through those pearly gates. Love you

The memories of my Mother-in-law will always remain in my heart. Her example of servitude has made me a better person.
