    I met Sister Ann when I became a member at Temple of Compassion over 15 yrs. ago. I would see her get her praise on every Sunday. She loved to praise the Lord.

    Also, she was faithful, trustworthy, and dedicated to our Pastor Evangelist Patricia Turner.

  2. Dearest Wonda, we pray for your strength during this time of loss. Aunt Ann was a beautiful woman- inside and out, a cheerful giver and will be greatly missed. Words cannot express our sorrow for someone so dearly loved. You made your parents very proud and honored them until the end. For this, God will continue to bless and keep you. May you find comfort for your sorrows in knowing that they are together again and you will see them some day in paradise. I thank God for having you and your mother in our lives. She was a cheerful giver and we know she surely loved us just as we loved her. Please know that we love you and are always here for you.
