Anna Mae was the friendly voice everyone heard when they called TSD. In all the years we worked together, I never heard her raise her voice or seem upset -- she calmed the waters and was always helpful. She was a fine person who made a positive difference in the lives of those who were fortunate enough to interact with her.
Family and friends, God bless you. Anna Mae left a shining example of how all of us should treasure one another.
Love and prayers,
Don Thompson
