    Dale and Family, I loved Anna! She was always so sweet, kind and gracious. She was, indeed, one of a kind and I will surely miss her sweet smile. She was brave beyond belief. I am so sorry for your loss, but we all know where she is! May God comfort and bless each of you.

    Anna was such a beautiful and gracious lady! I loved her dearly, and her life will be remembered fondly. She was a true southern lady who left a wonderful legacy. Her love for her family was strong, as was her faith in God. Lance and I are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time.

    To know Anna was to love her. She was beautiful on the outside but even more so on the inside. She will be missed. She was just like her precious mom.

    Anna and Ruthie,
    I was so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I remember when we were younger in Memphis thinking she looked like a movie star. She was just as sweet as she was beautiful. I will keep your family in my prayers.
