Andy and family: Was so sorry to learn of Annie's passing. I worked with her at Fayette Clinic over the years. She was a sweetheart, could be serious one minute and humorous the next minute. I enjoyed working with her. I truly believe that God gained an Angel when He called Annie home. My thoughts and prayers will be with you during this difficult time.

Annie - You will be missed! "Go Rest High on the Mountain. Your work on Earth is done." You left us with many good memories.
