    Roxane and family, you have my heartfelt condolences in the death of you mom, but Miss Annie to us. She has been a friend of my family (Johnsons) and special friends to my Aunt Carolyn and my mom, since I can remember and also they were bowling buddies since Berwick bowling alley days. Your mom was always smiling and always had something to laugh about. Even though I have not seen your Mom in a while, just watching her video tribute brought back fond memories of her. My prayers is that GOD will comfort you and family in the coming days and weeks and as time go you can sign a relief knowing she is resting in the arms of GOD!
