Anne will always be remembered as a very special person. She and I alone did the “learn to run program” together and her enthusiasm never wavered. Her kind, positive and cheerful ways will remain with all of us. Eva Hambley

We love you auntie. You will be greatly missed. Wish I could have seen you one more time
I close my eyes as I wipe a tear.
I just keep wishing you were still here.
I will hold all the memories deep in my heart.
Through these memories we'll never part.

I close my eyes as I wipe a tear.
I just keep wishing this pain would disappear.
I didn't get the chance to say my last goodbye.
I just didn't think you could ever die.

I close my eyes as I wipe a tear.
All of your love I will always hold near.
In my heart and my mind I will never be alone.
When my time comes......
I will meet you in heaven!
