Ana graced the Jennings family for over 15 years. Her beautiful heart and love for the de Matteo family was unending. Her songs were as beautiful as her faithfulness to our precious Bama and Blackjack. She will continue to live in our hearts forever.
Love, Jessi Colter Jennings

A garbage bag has many uses
A heart is strongest once it’s rooted
Rooted to the people you choose to love
Our foundation is celebration, thank you for always standing up

It was my honor to know and spend time with one of the greatest ladies I have ever met. Her ability to love and give knew no bounds. She touched my heart in so many ways, her enduring spirit will live on through her love of cooking and all the beauty she brought to this world. Save a place for me, at you heavily table dear friend.
