Sending all of my love to Mrs. Brande's family. She was one of my favorite people as a child. She treated me like one of her own and I am forever grateful for that. She played a huge role in my academic success. Much love to her children whom I also enjoyed and her grandchildren, as well.

I miss you so much! You never know how much you miss a person until they are no longer there to talk to. My heart will be heavy for awhile but I know you are in heaven with our Lord and Savior! Thank you for loving me unconditionally! I love you so much mama!

I am so sorry for your lost. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to God

It was my privilege to be one of Anett's first English teachers at GTCC. She had a way with words and loved them--an excellent writer. She once gave me the complete collection of Hemingway's short stories--only one example of her kind heart and eagerness to please. I was so proud of her when she graduated from UNCG, and I was there. She graced my life. My sympathies to her family.

My condolences to all. I knew Anett in Junior High and High School and during Junior High I just about lived at the Carchetti house with Anett, Tony, Cassandra, Casey, Sam & Lil. Those were some of the best times in my life. I remember Sam's spanish rice and salad and Anett and I upstairs at night sitting looking out the window and talking about everything under the sun. Of course, we grew up and went in different directions but I admired her path and always wished her the best. My prayers are with you all in your loss.

Anett - my dear friend. Beautiful memories: clarinet and vocal duets, helping me to hit a hit 'A' in our Christmas special music, best of all: laughing hysterically over who knows what. You will be sadly missed, but we'll meet again some sweet day.
