    Cindy and Steve, I just heard about Annie’s passing away. No words can describe what she meant to me many years ago. She was a light in a very dark time in my life and was a blessing to our entire family. I can’t wait to see her again in the Kingdom of God. She is in a beautiful place right now and we will see her again. I will be praying for you all as even though we know she is with Jesus, it still is a hole in the hearts of the ones that are her family and those that love her to not have her present in their lives everyday. Love to you all. Debbie Redden Vaughn

    Cindy & Steve, you have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your wonderful Mother. I was so glad to have the chance to get reacquainted with Ms. Anne at Donalson last Fall. There was no doubt that she had total devotion to her well-being by the two of you. May your memory keep her close to you in your hearts.

    So many sweet memories of this lady, but my most favorite are her handing out with us in the fair office before the races. She loved being there and she took her job of selling the race programs so serious. The entire family have been in my prayers today and will be in the days to come. Goodbye sweet Ann you will be missed.
