  • Dear Henderson Family,

    I many fond memories of Aunt Ann when they lived on Annabelle Street. She was a very special lady and held a special place in my heart. One of the best memories is when her and Uncle Jay went to Spain and they brought me back a pair of earrings, which I still wear and think of both of them.

    May God bless and comfort you during this difficult time.
