Anne was faithful to God and family. What more could any of us want to have said about us when our time comes to go home. I appreciated her support and love all through my growing up years and the smile on her face when I'd come back to visit at the Belvidere Church of Christ. For our wedding, Anne gave us a beautiful cake plate and cover. I remember her saying that she wanted us to have something pretty to start our married lives. Anne later gave me a holder for plastic bags that she had made. I have thought about her and Dewon often when I put bags in or out. I will always remember them. God be with you, the family. May you know his love in this time and of course all times.
