Annette was a beautiful person inside and out. She was the sweetest person I knew. She loved whole heartedly and always put others first. Definitely considered her family, she loved my boys and they loved her. We love you and miss you sweet Annette. Rest in peace and fly high with those beautiful angel wings I know you have. Till we meet again.
Love,
Lindsey Inman and Family.
