    Dear family of Annie and to Shelley, Hugs and prayers for all of you. Annie’s beautiful smile and sweetness will be missed. She fought a hard and long fight. She was such a joy. I know she is walking streets of gold and there are no more tears. Always, Audrey Smith

    I first met Annie when my dad moved into Granville House. I saw her daily for months after that. She had the most beautiful blue eyes. I always spoke to her and sometimes we sat and simply held hands. I wish I had known her before her time there. She was lovely and it was an honor to spend time with her. My condolences to the family.
