September 16, 1935 – April 15, 2008
Mom passed away peacefully after a hard-fought battle. Mom will be greatly missed by her children, grandchildren and her siblings.
Thank you to all the people that came to visit her in the hospital. Thank you to the nurses who made her comfortable. Thanks to Jennifer, Paula and all her friends from the Willows, she enjoyed her years there. We can’t thank you enough. There will be no funeral by request.
“Feisty” Anna enjoyed all of you
A ship sails and I stand watching
till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says she is gone.
Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all.
She is just as large now as when I last saw her.
Her diminished size and total loss from my sight
is in me, not her.
And just at that moment,
when someone at my side says she is gone,
there are others who are watching her
coming over their horizon
and other voices take up a glad shout –
There she comes!
