When I received the message that Annese had passed it brought back a flood of memories. There were so many wonderful times with you and Curtis that I will cherish forever. From the first time I met you I knew you were a special woman and I was honored to spend time with you. From the times you & Curtis would show up to surprise us, the talks & laughs we had, the time we bought matching shirts, nights at the VFW dancing until we couldn't anymore, our trips to GA and the places we went with you & Curtis made it so much more fun because we were together. I will miss your sweet laugh and smile. My boys, Jeff & Heath, and I are blessed to have had you & Curtis in our lives. Give Uncle Curtis a huge hug from me. You will be missed and forever loved.

The world has lost such a beautiful soul. She was a beautiful person inside and out with a heart of gold. I miss her laughter and her saying yeah. My prayers go out to her children and grandchildren she left behind her Legacy in them. Patricia you took care of your mother and Curtis for so many years and I know she was so grateful and I can never thank you enough helping take care of Curtis also and Denise I don't know you as well but I know she enjoyed you coming over and having lunch with her everyday. She is now resting in the arms of her Lord and savior. Rest in peace sweet lady you are surely missed.
