    Terry and family, I am so sorry to read about your Mom’s passing. I loved your Mom so much. She loved her family and was so proud of her children and grandchildren. Annette was not just a wife, Mom and grandmother, she was a “lady” in all sense of the word. May god bless you during this difficult time.
