Anne was a friend of mine when we worked together in Grapevine. She was always one of the most enjoyable people to see on a daily basis. Your whole family is in my prayers during this time. I hope you find the strength to have joy in celebrating her life. God Bless.

I didn't know your sweet little girl, nor do I know you, but I was prompted to watch the tribute video and now I am prompted to say to you....I am a parent of four grown children myself and I cannot imagine the grief you must be feeling, but I wanted to remind you of the wonderful life you provided for your child, evident in every photograph. God gave you Anne Marie to love, to hold, to teach, to guide back to her Heavenly Father and you have done a wonderful job of that. Now it is His turn to spend time with your sweet baby, just until you (her parents and family) return home to Him. She is in such a wonderful place now and as much as you love your baby...God loves her more. Please find comfort in knowing that she will be waiting for you, along with all of the promises our Lord and Savior has offered his children. May God bless you and comfort you. You did a wonderful job here on Earth with your little girl.

Deepest condolences to the family and friends of Anne Marie during this most difficult time. There are no words that can ease the pain of losing someone so beloved. May you find comfort and peace in knowing that your loved one is in God's memory. Psalms 116: 15
