I knew Anna when she worked at Saratoga Hospital. She was a wonderful person always smiling and always friendly. Thoughts and prayers to all. RIP Anna.

I am sorry to hear the passing of your mom. She was so sweet and always had a kind word for everyone. I just want to thank Bonnie and Beverly for being so nice to my mom when you came to visit. She enjoyed the visits and she would tell me the next morning when I came how nice you girls were. Sorry everything happened so fast with my mom that I didn’t get a chance to thank you!
