I wasn't able to attend her services, but my heart is there. Anna and Bob were my scout leaders. They were the pair that kept me on the right path. I will forever honor their memory. When my mother died Anna reached out to me, she was an incredible lady. I'll miss her Christmas Cards and I too have a sad heart as I remove her address from my list but not from my memories.

My condolences to the family. I met Anna many years ago as I was also a Girl Scout leader and directed several days camps. Girl Scouts will be missing a great lady.

Dear Anita, I loved Anna ever since we were Girl Scout leaders at Camp McMillan together beginning in 1962. My daughters Paula and Mary Margaret also knew her and loved her. We kept in touch all through the years, and when your dad became ill, my husband Frank, who worked for Social Security helped them get benefits. I remember them coming to our house then. It is with a sad heart that I take her address from my list of friends. You have my deepest sympathy. She was a wonderful talented person.

Dear Anita and family,
Rick and I were saddened when we heard the news of your mother's passing.
"Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow."
Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Rick and Babette Husted

To all the Cook Family, I Remember many good times we had at your Mom's house way back in the 60's and 70's. She was a great lady and now she is so lucky to be up there with her Savior. My prayers go out to all of you.
