I’m so very sorry for your loss. May the good Lord walk with you through this difficult time. I could talk to Anne about anything. She was so kind and so very sweet. She really cared about you and what you were going through. She was tender hearted and a very loving person. I worked with Anne at FedEx as a courier, my manager, and as a friend. Her smile was always bright and her words were always kind. Genuine. Rest in peace my friend. Love you, mean it, Tj
