So sorry to hear this. What a Beautiful lady inside and out. Annie has always had a very special place in my heart. As my son was born premature 1968 was in ICU at RCH. Annie was in the Nursery went there many times a day tears rolling down as I couldn’t hold him. One day Annie came out and said come with me she put gown mask gloves and let me hold him we both cried. “Happy to hold. him” she had ask Dr Boyette what a beautiful heart Annie has. I , know God needed another Angel and the Angels serenaded her to Heaven up to the throne . Annie’s loss is Heaven’s Gain . Heartfelt Sympathy to Jerry . Horace and all of Annie’s family.
