  1. Dear Matthew, Nancy & Megan,
    Our thoughts and prayers go out to you during this time of sorrow. Your mother was always so gracious and kind to me and I have fond memories of my visits as a kid to the home on Seneca Parkway. Celebrate her life everyday in the way you choose to live your own.
    Your Cousin, Suzanne (Mott) Todd

  2. It has been an honor to walk with the Steeb family since 1968.
    Memories are dear as I recall Annie lovingly.

    My sincerest sympathy to family and friends, wishing sweet healing to all.

    With Love,

  7. So many wonderful memories… her laughter and smile is what I recall best… and the wonderful home on Senca Parkway. Filled with family and personalties of people we loved.
    Even after all of these years, I kept her in my heart for her kindness.
    I will miss her and… everything that her persopna stood for.

  9. Well, Annie, We are sad and we hurt. But we are also grateful and proud. We are grateful and proud because we were your FRIEND. No matter what our relationshiip to you was – whether you were our mother, our grandmorher, our godmother, our sisiter, our aunt, oir cousin, our niece, neighbot, coworker, parishoner, in-law or outlaw – first and foremost you were a FRIEND. And you were a good friend, one who was always here, gentle, listening, attentive, selfless, always wanting to know what was going on in our lives. I can not say that you weren’t judgmental but that was all part of being a friend. And we thank you for all that.
    Now for some amongst us you were their best friend, and know that this is extra tough for them. But they will always hold an extra special place in their hearts for you. And they thank you for that. And I have a suspicion that they will continue to communicate with you and I know that you will listen and respond in your own special way.
    Now for those who know anything of my and Ann’s relarionship, know that it was at times strange and estranged, and we didn’t always agree or see eye to eye, but always respected each other. Such are friends. And whenever we would part, we had a ritual, sometimes to the embarassment and discomfort of others. And this ritual consisted of me yelling out, ‘I’ll miss you, Annie.’ And she would yell back, ‘I’ll miss you, Richard.’ Well I can not pull that off today, but suffice it to say:
    We love you, friend.
    We thank you, friend.
    And we’ll miss you, Annie.

  10. You were truly the wind beneath my wings thats for sure. I have to find my new wind, I guess this would be my kids because I know that is what you would want. I will always remember how magical you made my childhood and everything you have ever done for me. You were always there for me such a loving and caring Mother putting everyone else before yourself. Now you will continue to live in my heart for always. I love you so much! You were a fighter and your memory lives on forever.
