Wayne, Sandra, Gary and family members,
Alan and I would like to express our sympathy to all of you. We thought a lot of Anna Belle. She was my favorite cousin, like an older sister that I looked up to as we were growing up! When I would visit Aunt Belle over the summer we would have the best time together playing dress-up and sleeping on the floor with our blanket beds that were made for us. I remember visiting she and Wayne after they were married in their apartment and I thought it was so cool when he would come home from work and she would meet him at the door with a kiss! Those are some memories I have of Anna Belle. We will miss her! Charlotte and Alan
