    So sorry …to hear about your mother and didn’t know of your father’s passing either. I was their letter carrier on Briarwood for many years.I always enjoy seeing them in the front window and waving to me as I delivery their daily mail. Also always enjoyed my many chats at the mailbox;with both Leon and Anna. My sincere condolences.

    Our entire family’s thoughts and prayers are with Anna’s family. She and Mom were great roommates. They really watched out for each other.
    They are both sadly missed

    Dear family.
    I so enjoyed Anna and Lee. I am always at a loss for words, so I like to share a poem with you by Calvin Miller
    The Devine Symphony
    I once scorned ev’ry fearful thought of death, when it was but the end of pulse and breath,
    But now my eyes have seen that past the pain
    There is a world that ‘s waiting to be claimed

    Earthmaker, Holy, let me now depart,
    For living’s such a temporary art,
    And dying is but getting dressed for God,
    Our graves are merely doorways cut in sod.
