Donato and I will miss our beloved Ms. Annie, who was such a beautiful and talented person. She didn't deviate from her favorite gelato flavors, and we already knew how she liked her gelato served - a waffle cone on top of the cup. We were lucky and honored to have had the opportunity to listen to her play the piano like the pro that she was. Thank you, Ms. Annie, for the delicious beef stroganoff you shared with Donato - we will forever remember the good person you were. Your friends, Donato and Lupe

Annie came into our lives as a caregiver.
At 70 years old she came to help my mother who had severe Parkinson\'s disease and kidney failure. you would never know she was 70. She was so strong and did the work of a 30 year old. She walked in as a caregiver she truly became a family member. She traveled with my mom several times so she could be with family around the country. Whether it was New York or Maine she came with a smile, a laugh and often a song. My daughter Eliza plays the flute and they often played together, to the delight of the whole family. This picture was from just a month or so ago when we came to visit. Annie was able to beautifully improvise and accompany Eliza on her original song. Improvisation was her forte, in music and in life. From her stories it was clear she reinvented herself many times to figure out how to navigate life. What an kind, warm, and impressive woman. She was a wonderful role model for my family and I can tell for yours as well. She will be dearly missed.

Annie was a remarkable woman who we admired for many reasons. It would be impossible to adequately express how important she was to our family and the extraordinary impact she had on us. We are forever grateful that she was part of our world. Annie's warm smile, loving eyes, and delightful laugh will be with us forever. The world is a lesser place today.

May her memory be for a blessing.

I\'m Thomas Yi from the United States. I started playing lottery games 4 years ago and I have never won big. I went online to seek help on how I can win big in my lottery games and I saw some nice reviews about Abdul Basser who has made different people huge winners in their lottery games with his prayers. I gave it a try and I contacted Abdul Basser who told me how and what to do before I can become a big lotto winner and I accepted. He made special prayers for me at his temple and gave me the required numbers to play the lotto game and when I played it, I won a massive $235.4 million POWERBALL jackpot. I was so happy and I chose to receive my winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment of $160,038,447.27 at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee and the balance was given to the store that I bought & played the game from. I would love other people to seek help from him and he can be contacted through WhatsApp/call/text via this number +27717403094 or you can email him on: basserabdul59@gmail.com or visit his website at http://www.africanspellscaster.co.za.
