  1. I know she and her late husband went with my Mother and Dad to help them out at my Dad’s “ranch”, which they deeply appreciated. Ann also was kind at certain times to bring over homemade rolls to them. Always so kind to my mother and dad

  2. I am very sorry for the loss of Anne. I think of all the time and fun we had at Miracle Book Club all those years ago at Amarillo Bible Church. We were certianly a “motley” Crew in those years. But we had lots of fun! We will meet again when we are all together with our LORD!

  3. Sorry for your loss but be consoled that she is face to face with Christ her Savior and Heven and Eternity are made just a little sweeter for us waiting to go home too.
    Until then live your life for your Savior. He will comfort you. The son is all ways shining on a rainy day. It’s just the world that’s turned away.
    Keep your praises climbing and you’ll find light above the storm.
    Don’t fear the night. It’s in God’s timing.
    Trust endure until the morn.
