Aunt Annie was a very special person in my life. She will be missed. I treasure the memories we had when we were together. She taught me the power of love and family. Now she is making ornaments for God's trees with Uncle Billy and Wayne to hang them for her. A family reunited in the Kingdom of Heaven.
