I was only able to be around Aunt Annetta a few times. Mainly the year my dad, James Drake, passed away, 1990. I travelled to Kansas City a few months after dad died to attend my cousins wedding. I brought my brother James II and my son Channing with me. Channing was only 3 then. I remember how sweet Aunt Annetta was to us while we stayed there for several days and how much fun we had with the family. She fed us well and took good care of us! It was awesome to be able to stay in the house that I remembered as my grandparents home from when I was little. Her hospitality and kindness were something I never forgot. Unfortunately, over the years I lost touch with all of that side of my family. But I am thankful and blessed to have the memories of that trip to KC and time spent in her home. I am praying for peace and comfort for the entire family. God bless you all.

I worked with Annetta for 6 years. She was the sweetest person and always had a kind word. We kept in touch after I left the company. She will be fondly remembered. My prayers go out to Ralph, Lisa and the rest of the family. Rejoice with Jesus, Annetta.
