Dear Debbie, Peter, and Angelo, although on the other side of the world, my thoughts and prayers go to you all
For losing your Mom. Aunt Anna was one of my favorite aunts with whom I could sit and talk and laugh with, it's been over 10 years since I have been able to do that. I know and believe wholeheartedly the promise the Holy Bible makes about our beloved dead loved ones, that they are sleeping in the Grave and awaiting to return to us here on earth, it's a promise at Revelation 21:3,4, the website at explains very clearly that promise from the best selling book in the world. It's very comforting to know that the God of the Bible is a God of love, and it was not His will that we, like many families, have experienced so much death. Know I love you, you are my cousins. And hopefully I will be able to see you face to face one day
Your cousin Joann. FIji Islands

I will always remember my Aunt Anna for being kind to me and welcoming me into her home. She faced much adversity in her life and was a survivor with a good sense of humor. I will miss our talks at her home and on the phone. Rest in peace.

Mark I remember those times as well. Hope you are well my dear cousin. Sending you love from Fiji islands. Joann

Debbie and I are so saddened to hear of Aunt Anna's passing. Deb, I can not thank you enough for taking your Mom by on my birthday so I could see her. I would think of her often as she was always a special person, like your Dad, to me. Miss them both. Love, Mike Gervasini
