We wish to extend our sincere sympathy to each family member of Anna’s.I had not seen Anna for many years but I remember how much I loved to hear her and Edith sing in church as young people.Coming from a small community,we appreciated the talent that our “little cornor of the world” offered.Anna and her younger sister Edith never disappointed with their lovely harmonized voices.I remember Anna as having a love of life and a cheerful sense of humor.I am so sorry to know that she has passed on but I strongly believe that she had a very strong faith and that when her time came,she faced it not as an enemy but with open arms.May we all remember Anna as the kind of lady she was,”humble and kind”,as the song goes.May you all find comfort for your own memories in the days ahead.
