Hi, I am Aunt Anne's neice... my maiden name is Paula Sanchez...

Aunt Anne was always a gentle and kind person. My fondest memory of Aunt Anne was the year we travelled to Pennsylvania for Christmas.

I remember it was cold, so we didn't play outside much.

I was there with my two brothers, Rodney and Karl, and my Mom and Dad, Pat and Roland.

The highlight was, for me, that all us girls received matching light pink nightgowns.. we all put them on and someone took pictures.

I wish I had a picture to post...

I will always remember gentle Aunt Anne. May she rest in peace with the Angels..
