I went to school with Anna . She always had a kind word and a smile on her face. Anna was one of those rare people that everyone liked and I am proud to have known her and glad she was my friend.

I remember Anna's pretty smile when we were young girls. I am thinking now of her sweet sister Elma with love, sympathy and prayers.
