Anna Sue’s Family: I was so sorry to hear that Anna Sue had died and our thoughts and prayers will be with all of you. The last time I saw her was when she came to Mary Belle’s visitation–I know what it is to lose a sister and a brother, but I hope that the great memories you have will comfort you in the days ahead. Ruby & Glenn
So sorry to hear about Anna.
Whenever we visited about her insurance concerns she was very pleasant and concerned about her family!
We will be praying for all her loved ones !!!
I am so sorry for your loss. Ann was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. I was just starting to get close to her. She treated my family like her own. I sure am going to miss her. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
I am so sorry for your loss…….but it is heavens’ gain!
I loved Ana Sue, she was a lovely woman.
My parents, Stanley & Thelma Wallace, always talked so much about her & what a wonderful person she was.
She was a beautiful cousin & friend.
I honestly don’t know what to say, except that I’m so very sorry for your loss. I have only good memories of Anna Sue. My mother loved her so much, as she did all of you. She was always so good to Mom.
In the past year, when I was going through some rough times, Anna Sue called me more than once to let me know she loved me and my family and that she was praying for all of us. She told me to never give up because God would make everything alright. That meant so much to me.
Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know she will be missed so much, but please take comfort in the fact that she is in the arms of the very One who died for us all, our Savour and Lord, Jesus Christ.
I love all of you.
Clarissa, Guy and Famiy
What great neighborhood memories I have of Mom, Ann and Dodie standing on the sidewalk talking it up. You are all in my prayers. God Bless.
My thoughts are with all of you at this painful time. We have so many good memories of Aunt An and Uncle Paul!
I am very sorry to here of your loss. I thought your mother was doing better. She was a very nice woman and I know she loved you all very much.
I’m sorry I will not be able to make the trip to Kentucky but please know that my prayers and thoughts are with you.
