    Aunt Anna was not only my favorite aunt, but one of my favorite people. So many of my favorite childhood memories were ones when we were hanging out with her. She brought life and laughter to every gathering, and always made me feel loved. She was a strong woman who didn’t take any guff from anyone, and I’ve always admired her, loved her, and will miss her terribly.

    I have lost a good friend of many years. Ann was a living tutorial of how to live life in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ. The very best of examples to all of us. She will be sadly missed and joyfully remembered.
