My cousin, Anna Mae was the sweetest person I have ever known. I am so glad that I got to sit next to her at Bert's service. She was always so kind and caring. I am going to miss having lunch with her every now and than. She was a beautiful lady. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you, Tom, and your family. Love your cousin, Barbara Quay Murdoch
