    i knew Anne through the clerk's office; she was always helpful, but more than that, she was always very  warm and friendly.  If I ran into her socially, she was the same way, always proud of her family and asking about mine....My condolences to her wonderful family....jim

    Dear Family,

    Your Mother was a very sweet and dear soul.  She always greeted everyone with a smile on her face.  She loved her family, and often talked about you all.  She was very proud. We already missed her presence dearly after her retirement; however, I am certain that Ms. Ann is a joyful soul in heaven as we speak.  May her legacy live within your family forever.

    To the Miller Family-

    I would like to express my deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. She was a great lady. Not long ago, I saw her at Tim & Joes sharing dinner with family & friends. She always had a smile and a gift to gab. I worked with her in the Circuit Clerk's office besides knowing her from the Mullett side of my family. Losing those moms are so hard, but she has such a beautiful family I'm sure her memory will be alive forever in your hearts.

    You're in my thoughts & prayers.

    Dearest Miller family,

    Your mother will be missed by us all as her warm smile, kind words and sense of humor endeared her to all who had the good fortune of knowing her.  She kept me in line as a youth with her fun loving jabs and always made me feel like an extension of your family. Take solace in knowing that God has taken her to a better place as I know she'll be looking down fondly on us with a quick smile and a kind word.  All my sympathies for your loss.
