Dear David, Dale and family:
I am sorry to hear of your loss. The thing I remember most about Ms. Annette is how much she loved her grandchildren. Julianne and Joh David you were always on her mind and she did everything she could to make sure that you knew how much you were loved. I didn't have the opportunity to meet your sister Jennifer but I heard many stories and heard her pray many prayers for you all. She was faithful servant and both she and Brother Adams were always kind and considerate of me. I know she is in a much better place and I know she will greatly missed. I will not be able to attend tomorrow due to health issues but Raymond will be there to express our deepest sympathy. Please stay in touch. Victoria Burrows
