You and Larry Dean are back together again and I know you are both catching up on missed time. You were a wonderful couple and made our community a better place. I would like to thank you for the kindness you showed me over the years. I loved working for Larry and working with you at Deport. You both were great ... Lori ... I also have lots of great memories of you too. It was a blessing knowing each of you. Praying for the Salter family.

Dear Ones,
Sadly, we cannot keep those we love with us until eternity.
A smile comes to my heart as I remember my 2nd grade teacher. I was one of her first pupils when she began her teaching career and we began our school year calling her, Miss O'Brien. It was with great reluctance that I gave in and began using her married name after her marriage. In my young eyes, she had not changed and her name shouldn't either. We later laughed about those days when she had to insist that I call her Mrs. Salter.
She was my favorite teacher in those beginning school years. She was nurturing with an element of firmness and humor, the perfect mix for her little second graders.
I will treasure the memories I have of Mrs. Salter and our conversations over the years as we would see each other in the community. How thankful I am that she was the one who would play a part in my young years!
May her memory always be a blessing,

I went to and graduated from Paris High School with Annabee. I also knew her parents. Her dad worked at the post office with my husband. Such a sweet family. I know she missed Larry so much. I am so glad that they are now together. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Prayers for the family.

My heartfelt sympathy to you on the loss of Annabee. I first met Annabee when I began work at the prison in Bonham as the Librarian and she as Counselor. She was such a sweet, kind lady who helped me adjust to the new surrounding after coming from a public school classroom. We discovered we knew many of the same people even though we had never met before.

I recall how much she missed her husband and how loving she told of events in their life together. I rejoice that she is now reunited with him and other family.

Mrs. Annabee Salter , Was my 2nd grade teacher , I am now 53 years old and I have never forgotten about her , Her husband Larry Salter was my 12th grade business math teacher , These two educators were top favorites of mine . When I was in the 2nd grade , If I or anyone said the word Ain’t in class Mrs. Salter had us students to put a penny in the box on her desk , Needless to say , I put a lot of pennies throughout the school year in there . I always loved her pretty red hair .

Dear family,
My heart aches to read of the passing of Annabee. I know she is now home with her loved ones and I find comfort in that. I was so blessed to spend the first six years of my life on Neathery Street. Annabee along with Frank and Bee were wonderful neighbors and friends. Annabee was one of several 'girls' I considered my 'big sisters' as I was the youngest boy in the neighborhood. Ironically, none of my adopted 'big sisters' had a brother so I was a surrogate to them all I treasure the friendships now for almost 64 years.

I reconnected with the O'Brien family when I served as their paperboy from 1967-69 when they lived on the corner of Hubbard and 25th S.E.

Over my lifetime, wherever I would see Frank, Bee, and Annabee they would always make a point to speak to me, offer a hug, or an encouraging word. May God provide your strength for each new day and cherish the wonderful memories you shared.
