Anna was the greatest woman ever. She always had something to say, and didn't care what she said to you. Every weekend we would go straight to Buddy's and Anna's.. Always had a blast. We love you Anna.

Anna was my true friend and the first person to friend me when I moved here years ago. Her love of her family and friends was bigger than her. It didn't matter how long time would would pass I would see her and we would pick up like time had stood still. I loved her as my family. There's nothing she wouldn't do if I asked her. If she couldn't do it she knew someone that could. I love u Anna. Not only all those wonderful things but she was an amazing daughther, sister, mother, and wife. She loved her daughter more than herself and how close they were. And as for Buddy...anyone who knew Anna knew she truly loved Buddy Dunford. She was his rock and the glue that kept it all together. RIP ANNA.... UNTIL I SEE U AGAIN MY SWEET FRIEND.

Prayers for you Kristie and your entire family. And was a wonderful person and she loved you Kristie more than anything on this Earth. I will miss this beautiful women. RIP Anna your chores are thru. Love you guys
