Bill and I are so sorry for your loss. Will always remember how great your Mom was to us, and especially her wonderful banana bread that she would make for all of us to enjoy. I know how much she will be missed by you and the family. God speed.

The word "good" in the dictionary should have Anna's picture next to it. People don't come any finer than this hard-working, family-oriented lady. May it be a comfort to know that she and Les are together again.
