Memories Timeline


  1. You were the first person I called mama, my second born is named after you. It’s not fair you are gone this early, you will be forever missed. I love you

  2. Anne we will miss your infectious smile and laughter. You were a beautiful sole inside and out. One day we will meet again.

  3. My mom, she and I have so many memories good and bad! I’ve put my mom through some horribly tough times but she always stayed strong for me and her other kids along with her grandkids. She doesn’t really know how to show love she’s more of a tough love giver but let me tell you her love is unconditional. She loved planting flowers and trees, feeding the birds or having my dad build birdhouses so she can watch all the different kinds that come through. She acted tough and hard but really she was soft, loving, and caring. She had a mothers sense I’ve never seen before. She never stopped loving me no matter what I put her through even though I wasn’t thinking about her she always thought and prayed for me. I miss you mom dad aka Les misses you Nicole and Josh miss you. I can’t stand living each day without you, your smile was so contagious it could make the grumpiest person on their worse day happy and have them enjoying life at that moment. You had so much wisdom I never got to get out of you. I never thought I’d have to live without you heck I don’t want to live without you. I know you don’t want this for me I know coming to your day you were worried I’m your baby the youngest of 4 yet the one that gave you most of your gray hair lol I regret so much in life and the choices I’ve made yet no regret hurts more to me than having to life each day without you knowing I should’ve done more showed more and been more for you I’m sorry mom god I’m sorry for everything. These past 6 months have been hard on me so hard, but I know you are okay well at least I hope you are and I hope one day I’ll get to be wrapped in your arms again idc how old I am there’s nothing like running to you and having you hold me crying with me or angry at me yet still holding me and kissing my head or letting me in your bed with you having you rub on me or jus hold my hand or arm. You brought me peace a feeling of safety and a feeling of love. I love and miss you more than any word could describe mom, my life will never be the same.

  4. Oh Anne, how I miss your beautiful soul. I talk to the sky everyday about you and how I wish you were still here. You are always in my heart and it’s just not the same without you. Thinking about you as your birthday is coming up. I wish we could have some fun and drink some margaritas together like the ole days. Love you lots
