Annie, you have always been so gracious and kind to me whenever we shared a conversation at “your baby”- the Gamers Club. You have always compassionate and an excellent listener. It was always obvious that you took a sincere interest in what I had to say. I regret that I didn’t get to know you better. I know that you have been a brave, strong and determined person. May you rest in everlasting peace alongside God, your departed love ones and the angels in Heaven. May your memory always be for a blessing.

Dearest Sadie and Family, Your mom was truly an amazing, caring, loving woman who will sorely be missed by all who knew her. She helped so many of us in ways only a family of a child with special needs can understand. If not for her, so many would still be alone, wishing for a place like Island Gamers. With all our love, caring and prayers to get you through this difficult time.
