My heart goes out to the family in the loss of my "Aunt Annie Maude". She was very special to me while growing up and I love her dearly. Thank the Lord she is in a better place rejoicing with Louis and all her siblings and many friends. What a celebration she will have this Christmas even though we will miss her dearly. Belinda, Terry, Pamela and Wayne, I love each of you very much.

We were very sorry to hear of your loss. We understand greatly the loss that you all will have. There is nothing no greater than the memories of a very sweet and loving lady. Our hearts are with you as you go through these sad times, but just remember everytime she went to the gravesite she wanted to be with Earnest. She loved him a lot, I could tell by the way she talked about him. They are together now as she has wanted for sometimes. Love you all Steve and Kathy

I went to Penfield Cemetery for Christmas with flowers & to take a photo of the headstone. The Holly tree over the gravesite was full of red holly berries. I took a photo & a beautiful rainbow light was, across Mama's side, in the shape of a check mark. Just another sign from "The Mema" that she's OK & celebrating Jesus' birthday with HIM in Heaven :) We also had a thunder storm the first week of Dec....That was Mama & Daddy "Bowling" up a storm...Together again!
