Annie was such a wonderful friend to me. I worked in the nursery at Cedar Springs with her for over 32 years. She was always so sweet and kind. We talked about anything and everything, sometimes in strictest confidence. It went both ways. I knew I could always trust her. She could always tell when something was bothering me. She was like a second mother to me. She will be sadly missed by me and everyone that knew her. My deepest condolences to her family.

ANNIE WAS SUCH A DEAR FRIEND TO ME. I MET HER WORKING AT THE CHURCH IN THE NURSERY.
SHE STEPPED INTO THE ROLE OF A DEAR FRIEND, AND A GRANDPARENT FOR ME. I AM REALLY GOING TO MISS MY DEAR FREND. I AM PRAYING FOR THE REST OF THE FAMILY AT THIS TIME.

"Annie", a neighbor, was my late mom's best friend for decades. My mom worked for many years for Cedar Springs church with the nursery, event setups, etc. and Annie soon joined to be a valued coworker in those efforts. They passed a lot of time together and shared many stories, I'm sure.
