My deepest sympathy to the Callahan family. I worked for serveral years with Anna at ucfs in Westlake and even bowled on same team for years. She was like a 2nd mother to me always when we worked together always found ways to make me laugh. I will never forget the kindness she showed me. Love and miss you! The Lord gained another angel. And I know that you will be looking down on me.
