"Annie was a special person / adopted family member in our lives. We met when I started working at the Labs and the friendship grew and grew. We car pooled to work and Annie would often talk about her family; Harold when he was alive, John the son whom she lived with and took very good care of her and Paul and his family. In our retirement, I would sometimes go over and help them with their little dogs that needed their loving home and we would all chat and talk about the old days. Our daughters know her as Grandma Ann and she was special because she always crocheted tablecloths, afghans and other items for myself and the girls. We all have kept her and John in our prayers and wished that we had gotten to see her more, but we know that she is at peace now and no more pain and suffering. May God bless you Annie, we love you! Ginny and family"
