I’m so sorry for the loss of this beautiful lady. I had the pleasure of meeting her, once. She was very lovely and kind. I’ve heard so much about her loving heart over the years from Annie and Daniel. The both of them love her very much. I know she will be missed by all. God Bless.

I really looked forward to my visits with Annabell each week. I only knew her for a short while, but she was so welcoming and warm. I’m blessed to have been given the opportunity to know her.

Mama Annabell,
You were a part of my favorite memories as a kid. Our neighborhood on Virginia and Andover Road was so special. I think of those times often. I'm sure you're with Dick getting him his summer sausage....he's been waiting a long time to see you again.
Until we meet again,
