Anna was a very devout Catholic and loving mother and grandmother who never let a day go by without saying a rosary with her family. Anna was also my grandmother. On November 26, 1988 she passed away at the age of 94. This was the first time I felt the pain that death leaves for the survivors. I miss her dearly.
