Memories Timeline


  1. Dearest Anna Marie, you were a wonderful daughter. Your dedication to your mother’s comfort and care was unfailing, including calling her every day that you weren’t actually visiting her, in spite of your own busy life. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

  2. Dear Anna Marie, So very sorry to hear about your mothers passing. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless all of you with his strength to get through theses trying times?

  3. Anna Marie, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. She will be missed by many. She always had such kind words for me everyday that I worked. She loved my girls and their families and they loved her so very much. The Lord certainly got an angel. She was so blessed to have you at her side . Your memories of her and all you two shared will keep her with you always.

  4. Dear Anna Marie I am so sorry to learn of your loss. No doubt this is a difficult timefor you and Kathy. Please know I am sorry that I can’t make it in to see you and pay my respect to your mom. But be assured of my thoughts and prayers. Theresa

  5. Kathy and Anna Marie, You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your mom. I looked forward to my visits to Wyngate each week to visit her. We always had such a good spirited conversation. I teased her a lot about all the photos she had that she always shared with me. The last time I had a good visit with her I forgot to give her a kiss when leaving – and she said, “what, no kiss”. You are in my prayers. I feel that we have lost a treasure until we all meet again in heaven. I always felt a little guilty when I left because I felt as though I took away more than I gave when I visited her.

  6. Kathy and Anna Marie, As you know, I thought your mom was special. I feel so fortunate that we were friends. Prayers. Pat Austin

  7. Kathy and family, I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. You have my deepest sympathies. Know that you will be in my prayers. I miss hearing from you Kathy and hope that you will contact me soon. I lost my dad in May and don’t know if you knew that or not. I am having problems with my legs or I would be there for you. Please know that I am thinking of you and ask that the Lord help you through these trying days. god bless you Love Mary
