Some of my memories of Anna Ruth are:
Celebrating our March birthdays a day apart each year.
Going to Dairy Queen for ice cream cones.
Waking up on Sunday mornings to the scent of homemade cinnamon rolls that my Dad made.

I was married October 23rd of 1982 and Anna got married in November of 1982. My daughter, Erika LeeAnn was a namesake.
Anna, we were born as cousins but you became a sister.
With Love Rest in Peace,

My sister Annie was so precious to me and even though we didn’t meet til midlife I was blessed to visit her in Indiana and have her visit my home in California several times. She loved seeing the Pacific Ocean, then going to Hawaii with Bill, Linda, Claire and I, watching whales, walking on the beaches and laughing with family. She loved sitting on the couch and being loved by our Border Collie, Skye. I believe Skye greeted Annie on the other side. I love you Annie.
