I am so sorry to hear about Mrs. Annie Mae. She was a second Mom to everyone in Spunky’s class. I have loved her for as long as I can remember. I use to love for Mama to get her hair fixed so I could go to her house. I only got the news yesterday. I do not take the paper anymore and had not talked to anyone. For sure she is in a better place. She will always be in the good memories to all that knew her. Sending prayers to you and family.

Annie Mae held a special place in the hearts of Robert Linwood's family. She was such a talented and kind lady. May you be comforted in knowing that she is "OK" now.
