Anne was the lifelong best friend of my dear wife, Nancy Ann -- from grade school, thru UK & UofL, to visits to each other's homes in Louisville & Houston. We double-dated with her in our teens & 20s until our marriage & then Anne was our Maid-of-Honor. NancyAnn & Anne were born the same year & left us the same year ---- something that probably would make them smile.today ---- and perhaps does. Anne was a beautiful person. We loved her. My sincere sympathy goes out to all her family. God bless.

Some of my favorite memories of my mom are of the quiet morning conversations with her on visits home when I went away to college.

After I went off to Austin to attend school I would come home once a month or so to visit the family. It always felt so nice to know that no matter what happened in life there was always a loving embrace and supportive word from my parents whenever I would visit. 2527 Palo Pinto felt like a warm, stable, peaceful port in the middle of life's unpredictable storms.

Both mom and I were early risers and before anyone else was awake we would both grab a cup of coffee and head into the living room. She would curl up in her chair and I would do the same in dad's.

Then we would just get caught up with each other on all the latest news in our lives. There were no outside distractions and we had some of the best conversations and reconnected each time.

It was a very special, very personal time for us both. I will always cherish the memories of those quiet morning visits when I used my inside voice and my mom's eyes sparkled as she caught me up on all the important details. I smile every time I think of that.
