Keith and Karen, I am so sorry for your loss. Annie was such a special person and her laugh was so contagious. It always brightened my day. I think my fondest memory will always be when she and John got married. She was so beautiful that day and it was a honor to be part of that day with her and family. My thoughts and sympathy is with you and family. My God Bless Everyone!
