Earth has lost an angel and Heaven has gained one. I love this woman! A true GOD-loving soul, who would help anyone at anytime, no matter what was happening in her own life. Just not enough words to describe her goodness and generosity!

My heart was sadden when I heard of Annette's passing, but then I thought, oh my, what a glorious homecoming she must be having in heaven! Her life was a testament to her faith and her love of God and family. She was certainly a beautiful southern lady both inside and out. What a testament to Proverbs 31:10-31 her life has been. I especially like verse 28, which I believe each of you children can say about your Mom (."Her children shall rise up, and call her blessed;") She was a special lady and I cherish the friendship we had. Our prayer for each of you is that you find peace and God's comfort in the next few days. May you feel the warmth of our Savior's hand on your shoulder and know that He is walking right beside you. Love to each of you. Peggy and David Gladden
