I worked with Annie at Morey's. I am sorry to hear of her passing. I recall her as friendly and a great person to have as a store manager. From the years I knew her she helped me out with time off work when my dad passed away. To chatting whole at work when we had the time to. I haven't kept I. Touch with her to often over the years since I left Morey's. But I did know she enjoyed doing what she could for her friends.

Sorry to hear of Annie's passing. I don't get the newspaper so I had no idea of her passing nor of her funeral being today. Sorry none of the Don Blunk family was able to attend. Our condolences to you.
