I'm sad to hear of Anna's passing. I was at Utz Terrace on Thursday and stopped by her room but I wasn't able to see her. I went on to visit my other friends .. some of which were playing BINGO. I worked at Lincoln Tours with Anna. I know she will be missed .. she loved to travel~~

Condolences to Anna's family and friends. She had so many stories. I loved hearing them. I met Anna at YMCA during bus trips. Such a kind caring lady. My Mom and I saved a lot of her newspaper stories. She really enjoyed life.
