I met The Lovely Miss Anna Lou during her last few months here with us. She was such a sweet soul and had a sweet sweet spirit about her. I have thought of her often since her passing and it has always blessed me and put a warm feeling in my heart. So sorry for the loss of this wonderful lady! Praying for Ben and Kari and the family of Miss Anna Lou.
