Dear Family,
Having taught with Annetta at Oak Hill High School, I remember her well as a dedicated and well-informed teacher. She was a pleasant person and contributed greatly to the educational background of her students.
Please accept my sympathy at this time.
Sincerely, Marilyn Montgomery

The first time I met Annetta and Bob was at the Chili’s restaurant in Arlington Virginia, 20 years ago. I was so nervous and Annetta was so bubbly and kind and very welcoming to me that I felt instantly at home visiting with them. Over the next couple of decades, I was able to share many meals with them. Whenever they came to Paul's for a visit I was always welcomed right along with my grown children and grandchildren to join them for meals out at the local restaurants or preparing meals together at Paul's. Annetta was so sweet and kind to my grandchildren, she treated us like family, and she would always remember them at Christmas and birthdays with gifts. I could not imagine not visiting when they were in town, it was a wonderful joyful tradition. We love her. I will never forget Christmas one year when I was trying to put together a lego style 3-d Santa cottage with 100 pieces for my granddaughter, and I am not a puzzle person. Annetta got down on the floor and said lets put this together! She was a pro at it and really fun to watch, I quickly knew where Paul got his puzzle skills from. We had it together in time, or rather she had it together in no time. Over the past few years, I have really missed her phone calls that ended just a short time after her stroke. In the photo below, the same one I put on Bob's memorial page, was such a fun dinner and was one of many at the Japanese Steakhouse in Alexandria Virginia when my granddaughter joined us... Annetta, you are so loved and missed... with much love from me and my family, Donna McClure

Bob and Annetta were dear friends for many years. We had many lunches together and I'll forever miss them both. Our prayers are with the Myers family and all who loved them.
