    Aunt Anna Mae will always hold a special place in my heart. Even though over the years we didn’t see alot of each other I always felt a connection with her. I was always called little Anna Mae because I had so many of her characteristics. I am very proud to be know as that and will always cherish it. I’m sure she is at peace and with all our loved ones. Will miss you and remember you always.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I did not know your loved one personally, but I do know the pain of losing a loved one in death. It is my hope that you may find comfort from family and friends, and from “the God of all comfort” who can provide us with peace during such difficult times. – 2 Corinthians 1:3
