Anna Mae enjoyed gardening and keeping up with her yard making sure it was ready for spring. She always gave good advice but was very stern when giving it. She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren during the holidays. During her last few months, Anna Mae would talk about some of her favorite memories, and the things she loved most. Although, she and Carlos (Charlie) had some arguments, she loved him with all her heart. During difficult times, Anna Mae was always there to help. She had a giving heart and would never turn anyone away. Anna Mae was a funny and sarcastic woman but had a heart of God. She was very faithful to God and loved sharing His word. Our mother and grandmother leaves a wonderful legacy for us to follow in.

2 Timothy 4:7-8 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me- the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of His return. And the prize is not just for me, but for all who eagerly look forward to his coming.
