To Ernest and the rest of Annie’s family, please accept my heartfelt condolences over your loss, I worked with Annie for a few years at Hudson River Psychiatric Center. What a dear woman she was. I know she will truly be missed by all, but no doubt she will be remembered for her loving spirit. Please take comfort in what the Bible says at John 5:28,29 where our Lord Jesus promises a resurrection of the righteous.
