I am going to miss Mrs. Anne soo much, I enjoyed the times that I've spent with her over the years. She was a feisty little lady and that's what I loved about her. I would go get her out of Royalton Manor and we would have a great day together. She was like a grandma to my kids and I. We will miss you Mrs. Anne & never forget you. As you always said as we would leave, Have a Blessed!! Continue to rest in the arms of Angels.

Over the past few months, Annie and I got to know each other a little better. I quickly learned she was a "Pepsi-holic" like me so I made sure she had a cold can of Pepsi every day. She loved hot weather and would ask to go outside when I thought it was unbearably hot. I would ask her how she could enjoy sitting in the heat and she would respond with "why can't you?" When I told her that summer was my least favorite season, she was shocked, and it showed on her face. Annie told me that one day she was going to cook me some collard greens "the way they should be cooked". I wish I could have had that experience. It took time for Annie to warm up to me but I am grateful we had the time to establish a friendship. She was funny. She was honest. She was smart. She was one of a kind. I am going to miss her. See you in heaven, Annie!
