Annie was my best friend and roommate when we were at Harding and I considered her a best friend for Life. She would do anything for you. Always had a wonderful smile. Annie gave me my nickname Duck and it follows me today. She always called me by Duck after that day. I cherish the memories of us playing softball together, eating at Burger Barn, hanging out with our best friend and roommate Bonnie, or going to Walmart in a snow storm so she could buy a TV. Annie you have a special place in my heart forever. Rest in peace, you are pain free now. Fly high my Friend.

I've only known Annie for about 10 years, but she was always a joy to be around. Never saw her without a smile and a lot of times you could tell she wasn't doing well but the smile never disappeared. She will be greatly missed. RIP Annie until i see that smile again!!
