I am so sorry to hear Annette has passed away. I worked with her and for her at CPSB. I am now an Arabie myself but with her an O'Quinn. I had been trying to find her for 6 years not knowing where to start even going back to where your parents used to live. Unfortunately I did not know Lonnie was her brother. I met him a few years ago my son Vernon and him are good friends. It is a small world. Holding tears back I wish I could have seen her at least one more time!! I LOVED her dearly!
