"Aunt Anne was such a classy lady! Some of my very favorite childhood memories are at her home. She was my model of grace and beauty and I always wanted to grow up to be just like her. What a joy she brought to my dads life (her brother) and her influence will live in my heart forever. I love you Aunt Anne...give daddy and Uncle Barnes a big hug and kiss from me."
