Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. May you find comfort in the words found in the Bible. Since she loved Christian books she probabley loved the Bible more than any. She probably read Revelation 21:1-5 many times. God said he was creating new heavens and a new earth. With no tears sickness, sorrow, pain and death. I know this thought has always comforted me.

Ms. Annie Mae, as I called her back in Baltimore in the early 1960's. She Called me Piggy, Wonderful Lady. May God welcome her by saying "Welcome Home Ms.Annie Mae"
