I have so many wonderful memories of my grandma. The memories I'll cherish the most are the little things. watching Air Bud in her bed, trying on her jewelry, and playing gin rummy which she taught me how to play. Every time I'd visit I knew there would be a fully stocked freezer of freeze pops and the hot tub ready to go for me. I always had fun when I was with her. I will miss her laugh.

Anne was like a big sister to me and was devoted to my brother. She enjoyed life and made it special for others in many ways. She will be missed.

I remember going to the Opry but can’t remember the zoo. Janna-you have always had a better memory than me. I’ll always remember the summers we spent with Grandma growing up. I have so many little memories or things that remind me of her and make me smile. Things like blow up swimming pools, making a mess washing dishes at her sink, going the movie theater and squeezing her hand during Jurassic Park, getting Krispy Kreme’s, visiting Grandpa Burns and making ice tea at the church in Tennessee, the rolls at the Golden Corral, and sneaking into the fridge to get a jello pack she would always keep stocked for us. I still get strawberry wafer cookies every summer and think of her. You always had an ally in Grandma when you got in trouble with Papa as well. Grandma always spoiled us and made us feel loved. I hope I can make my kids feel as special as she did for me.

I'll always remember summers with Grandma Anne. It's the little things that stand out, more than the big trips. Yes, we went to the Opryland Hotel and she took us to the zoo, but some of my most vivid memories are singing into the fan on the floor of her kitchen, the refrigerator being stocked with Little Hug Fruit Barrels, and sitting with her in her office at Kinder Care during nap time (which I hated). In college I visited her and we went fishing together (something I never really imagined doing with Grandma). I took my kids down years later, and even though she wasn't sure who we all were all the time, she was welcoming and loving. There was no one like her.

We lived up the street from them, went to same schools and church together. We lived close to all our family in Bordeaux. I stayed with Anne, and Aunt Mary after school. Anne would fix popcorn balls for snack. I remember getting new dress for Anne and Eugene's home wedding. Went to Georgia to see their new baby. A great hostess when we visited them in Flordia . She was a sweet cousin and I'll never forget her laughter and smile. I love you Anne. Sandra

Anne and I were more like sisters in our early years. She was fun and had a great laugh. I have missed her for the last few years . All my love to her family!
