Mrs Anna was my neighbor and I absolutely adored her. The first time we met was a few weeks after we moved into our home and she stood outside in the rain with an umbrella and we wound up talking for over an hour in her garage. She spoke volumes of her family and living in Florida and how much she loved her daughters. She was always there to greet us coming from from work after a long day and catching up when we could. She will be sorely missed. Your family is my thoughts Mrs Anna 💕

Dear Alexis, Edith and family. I was sad to hear of mom's passing. Anna always had so much energy and passion for what she did. She was so kind to me and my son Anthony. May you rest in peace dear sister in law.

Love Toni

Anna was such a special lady! I enjoyed the time spent together visiting, story telling and reminiscing about the old days. It was an honor and privilege to have known Anna. Love always, Susan.

I didn't know your Mom personally but I did talk to her when Alexis had her first knee surgery. She was so sweet on the phone and couldn't quit thanking me for taking care of her baby. Prayers for the family.
