My Aunt Anna Belle has been, and will always be one of my favorite relatives. Now there are far fewer of them, so we must all treasure our time together while in this world. Mine and my Wife’s deepest condolences go to all of Aunt Anna Belle’s family and many friends. Please forgive us for not attending, but know our hearts are with you all.
Bonnie, Steve, Scott, Jill and Family ~
Please know I’ll be keeping you in my prayers, thoughts and in my heart. I have many memories of Anna Belle. My favorite would have to be the summer Bonnie and I spent a few days with her sewing, chatting, giggling and lunching. This is the memory I will have when I think of Anna Belle. Wishing you all the strength and healing you need now and in the days to come. God Bless. ~ XO
“And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” (1 Corinthians 15:26) God promises that he will soon wipe away and reverse the effects of this enemy that causes so much pain. Your precious Mrs Amos will be brought back to you and you will never have to experience the pain of losing her ever again. This is a promise from God! (John 5: 28,29) Jw.org
