I remember going over all of the time and your mom treated me like one of the boys. I’m sorry for your loss.

Annette was such a beautiful, loving woman who always opened her heart and home to visitors. Always had the best meals, especially those brownies!! Annette always had a smile and hug! Always uplifting spirit. She was happy and never was sad or said she was in pain. She was the hardest working woman I know. Constantly serving others with a smile. She wanted to make all of us feel wanted and happy. And we did. She was the best Mother in law my Daughter ever had. They were two peas in a pod when it came to pleasing Bill and Bryan. Such a loving caring Family, we will never forget.
Love, Vickie and Kevin Acosta❤️

Uncle Billy Joe & Family,
Aunt Annette was such a presence when she walked in a room. Stunningly beautiful with a smile that could light up any nation and that striking red hair. She had the best laugh! A hearty laugh that you just knew came from the depths of her soul. She was so kind, caring, and loving to all of us. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Sending big hugs and lots of love across the miles. --Kimmy
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18

Bill, our deepest sympathy goes out to you and Bryan, and the entire family and friends! Vickie and I are so blessed to have known her for all these many years! All I'll ever remember her as is just one of the caringest, sweetest people in which I've ever met! Always joyfully serving others no matter what she was dealing with in her own life!
And how THANKFUL I am that she trusted in Christ as her Personal Lord and Savior! The evidence of that was how she lived her life out with a servants attitude! And now she's been healed FOR ETERNITY and is feeling nothing other than COMPLETE GLORY! For as the Apostle Paul proclaimed so JOYFULLY: To live is Christ and to die is gain!
But in the meantime of course there will be great heartache and grief because how could there not when such a special person has been called home to the Lord and is no longer with us on this Earth.
But Bill and family, all this is only a TEMPORARY SEPERATION, as one day, we too, who have trusted in CHRIST to be our Personal Lord and Savior, we shall be reunited with Annette and all the many other fellow Believers up in HEAVEN!
I pray God's comfort, strength, and Grace over the entire family! For it's through His love, might, and power, that the each of us shall remain joyful and OVERCOMERS, even as the sting of death is indeed so tough to deal with!
Stay strong and faithful in the Lord, and I PROMISE YOU that He's gonna see you through ANYTHING and EVERYTHING , until that GLORIOUS Day in which we all experience exactly the same PERFECT GLORY THAT ANNETTE is in the presence of as I speak! Love y'all, and shall always be pleading the blood of our precious Savior over everyone of you , that He will indeed provide the exact comfort and peace you need!

Dearest BJ and family , My thoughts and prayers are with each one of you as you get through this sad difficult journey of putting Annette at rest. She loved each one of you so very much and I know you all are heartbroken. Try to remember she is now out of the devastating pain cancer patients endure and is now looking down on each of you guiding you through your final goodbyes. She was so very strong and such a fighter. So wish I could be there with you during this trying time.
My Love and Prayers are with each of you.
Peggy and family are with you in spirit .
