A Great Lady has passed.
I was saddened when I learned.
I am fortunate to have been enlightened by her warm spirit.
Her husband, my Uncle Willie, & her were a perfect match. Both had a great sense of humor, as well as a great sense of family. They were my Godparents. I always felt they regarded it as a responsibility. I always felt they were a wonderful choice. Anna & Willie showed me humor and kindness.
Your spirit has touched many.
