Ma Anne was the sweetest woman that ever graced this earth. I was blessed to get to spend many occasions with her. The last one was her granddaughter Allison's wedding. We toasted Allison & Jonathan a few times, did a little chair dancing and went down memory lane of how adorable Allison & Ashley were growing up. She had a huge smile on her face watching her groom dance with their granddaughters. She always had a kind word for me and anyone we were talking about. She was a beautiful lady and that shows in her daughter Camille and her granddaughters Allison & Ashley. Your smile now brightens heaven. You are greatly missed. Love you always and forever, Melissa
