My Halloween memory is the neighborhood ladies sitting in my driveway having a toast or two while the kids were surprised to get candy from 3 or 4 houses just for stopping by! I will be out this year having toast or two for you sitting around the firepit....
Miss you my friend.
Sympathy to the family,

My fabulous Aunt Anna! Lots of happy memories of her on her many visits to see her family in Bonnie Scotland. She was always so pleased to see everyone and spend time with them. Everyone was delighted to see Anna and spend time with her! Always warm, caring, laughing, smiling, great fun and kind. I'll always remember her infectious laugh. When she wasn't in Scotland she was great at keeping in touch with all her family here. We will all miss hearing her news and chat about her life And family in Texas.
Anna will be so sadly missed. We've been blessed to have you in our lives.

Anna was more than just my friend, she was like an older sister to me. I have known Anna for 32 years. I remember calling her the pretty lady because she was always well dressed, especially coming home from work. My sons would tell me, “look mom, the pretty lady is home.” I remember telling her how her hair was never out of place, it was always so perfect. Anna and I were very close. Thursday evenings, we would have our rum and coke while Joe would watch his TV shows and sometimes we would join him. In the evenings we would sit in front of Laura’s driveway to talk. I am so thankful that she took the time to knit all of the bennie hats for my entire family. Ricardo, my boys and I are blessed to have had Anna be part of our lives. She was a wonderful person and will never be forgotten. We will always have her in our hearts. We love you Anna.
Love, Esther, Ricardo and family

My favorite memories with Anna is growing up with the 2 Scottish families that originally met in New York. My parents along with Joe and Anna being best friends. Their rum and cokes, their gin rummy. My mom and Anna working together. Anna’s laugh. She would try to be serious and straight laced around us all but once we had a couple of drinks in her she was the life of the party. We have 3 generations of our families being more like family instead of friends. I will miss Anna and remember all the fun times our families shared together for the past 45 years. See you when I see you. Love always 💜
