I met Annie many years back and I'll tell the pleasure was all mine.
She and her extended family, "sister , brother in law, husband nieces,
Nephews, I mean the whole gang of them are just
Wonderful people. They all became family to me
When I was invited to family Christmas party and
Annie saw me come in she was like Gail yay, come
sit with us. Always made me feel so welcome. Always
A smile on her face, never did I see her frown. Always
A hug hello and goodbye. I will miss her she was a great
One! Say hello to Carl for me. Love ya!
