  2. Dave, Troy, Chris, Lisa,
    Our families have been friends- and connected- for a long time; and my thoughts and prayers are with you all today. No matter the time or the age, it is always difficult to lose someone you love.
    God Bless,

  3. I always remember Mrs. hall as a kind and funny woman. When I was told that she had pasted on I truly broke apart…My family was her and Mr. Hall’s neighbors for about eight years in the early 1990’s we will miss her and her kindness so much…god bless you

  4. Ella Mae and Family,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Don remembered Anna as being very kind and helpful when he worked at the university library. I remember how friendly and supportive she was to me when I first came to Bethel. We will miss her.

  5. My thoughts are with all of you at this time. I will always remember Anna for sweet nature, and sense of humor. She was so thoughtful, and always took the time to look in on my father during holidays and birthdays when he was unable to leave the house. She will be missed.

  6. I am so very thank full to Janet for calling me and telling me about Aunt Anna. I was not lucky enough to have time with her, but do remember her laugh and great smile. Celebrate Anna with your own memories and the memories that others share with you. This celebration will keep Anna with you and she will remain part of you.

    All my love and prayers Ruthie.
