I am very sad to hear about Anna Louise who was my mom’s sister-in-law. A thoughtful lady, she would send my mom Christmas gifts every year and they kept in contact up to the time my mom passed away in December. She and I would talk periodically and my sisters and I planned on visiting her this summer. Condolences to Anna Louise’s family from the Higley’s.

Anna Louise,
Ed and I will miss you so much. We will miss your laughter, your witty remarks, and your smile.
Hardee's Big Table was such a fun place.
We will cherish our opossum Christmas ornament forever.

Darlene and Ed

Anna became my friend when she stopped into Animal Tracks Pet Shop shortly after we opened in 1988.
I think her and Ed had Toby then. They made a great couple.
We spoke somewhat often; I visited Anna April 25th, had pizza, talked, laughed...
We planned a dinner date, now that she had gotten the Covid-19 vaccine.
