Aunt Anne was such a wonderful woman. She was blessed with so many talents, which she so freely shared with those around her. Unfortunately, I have not been able to visit her in years, but did get to talk with her on the phone. I love you Aunt Anne, looking forward to seeing you again.
Love, Angela Sherrod-Hamby

Mrs. Cone was a wonderful lady The world needs more like her. I remember the beautiful strawberry brooch that she gave me when I graduated from high school in 1969. God Bless you always -
