What a touching message! I have corresponded with you before, but it has
been sometime ago.

The "Miss Annie" Obit brings back memories of my own mother, who passed at
100 years and 3 weeks, after about 6 months of failing without knowing or
comprehending very much at all.

My Best Wishes to you and your family.

Violet Moore Guy
