Mary Alice -- I was sorry to learn of your mom's death through my cousin Alice. I have always known of Annie through Sara Alice, and am glad I got to know her better when she and my mom were neighbors at DWRC. Mom and I learned not to talk too long over lunch with her as she had to get to her card game in the lounge! Praying God will comfort you in the days ahead with loving memories of sweet times together.-- Trudi Price Estes
