We remember fondly the times we all spent together when Anna was little. Our families practicing 'exchange vacation parenting', where your girls stay with us and visa versa, for adult holidays was a great way to truly experience the gift of Anna. We will never forget when Anna first came over and we thought.....oh look Molly and Emily have a real live doll! She was so so cute with that high voice and perky little personality. Fond times for all of us. We are so sorry for your loss. Thank you for the gift of Anna.

I’m so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God’s promise of a resurrection where we will be reunited with our loved ones who have passed away and will never be separated by death again - John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:3,4

Dear Bonnie, Tom and family, We are so very sad and profoundly sorry over your losing Anna. She and Ashleigh shared an enduring friendship since 1994, and during those early years the girls had many visits at each other's homes. Anna was a devoted animal lover, and enjoyed being around our assortment including ponies and pigs. The girls caught and released a number of turtles together. One very special time was New Year's weekend 1999, when Anna joined our family trip to Saint Augustine. We watched the fireworks over the water and had a delightful, very memorable trip. We'll treasure that time we had with her. Anna was lovely inside and out, and we cannot adequately express our sorrow.
Here's a photo of young Anna at a happy time with friends.
Love, Pamela and Dave Bateman

My sweet Anna...you were such a very special and unique old soul. Unlike any other friend I’ve had. I feel so lucky to have been able to spend so much time and make so many memories with you.
You will be missed everyday but i know you will always be with us.

Such a sweet and gentle spirit; that’s what comes to mind when I think of Anna banana. She was a mixture of being strong and delicate, fragile yet so tenacious . Truly artistic and the ultimate animal whisper guru. She was truly loved and will be greatly missed. Molly and Emily you both were the best Big Sisters ever. May your heart ache be soothed by the fond memories she left you both. Tom and Bonnie there are no words. My heart breaks for you

It was an honor to have spent time with Anna. She was such a wonderful young lady. She made my dogs melt when they would see her. Truly a dog whisperer !
Her love for her family was conveyed to me several times when we had lunch or just visited with each other. Her mom's strength when she got sick or had surgery. Her new car that her dad helped her pick out. Excitement about her sister having a baby soon! Fun living with her sister. Vacations as a child. Crystals and healing we could talk about for hours...Her love of art which probably came from her mom...
I will miss her beyond words.......and with tears in my eyes and a heavy heart am just so thankful to have spent time with such an angel.
