Janis and Rip,
I'm so sorry for your loss. She sure sounds like an amazing woman.
Please know I'm thinking of you and sending big tight hugs.
Mary, Janis, Emily, Sara and Stephen,
I know that Annis was an great mother to you and want to express my gratitude that for a time she was also like a mother to me and many of the other friends of her amazing children that crossed her path. I remember her as being welcoming, nurturing, inquisitive, humorous and also willing to be very direct with her opinion and advice - all of which were appreciated.
I know that she was well loved and loved well. I hope you are able to be gentle with yourselves in your grief and let it take the time that it does.
I unfortunately can't attend the memorial and am sorry to miss seeing all of you and sharing stories about your Mom.
Lots of love, Marcy
I have so many personal memories of Annis that I could fill a book!!.
Thinking of you and sending condolences to Emily and Pat on your loss. Emily, your mom sounds like an amazing woman. Hugs to you both.
