    My deepest condolences to the family. I grew up with Annie and Bobby as my best friends; their mother was the closest friend of my own mother. Our paths as grown-ups separated us but Annie will always have a special place in my heart.
    I will remember her daily as my dearest childhood friend and keeper of childhood dreams.
    Bless her mother, sister and brother as well as husband and children, may they find solace in the fact that she is now home with her brother Bobbie and her father.
    God bless you all in your loss.
