    We are extremely thankful to have shared some beautiful memories of fellowship and worshipping our Lord and Savior with Ms. Annie. But, we never got her those 'purple' shoes (smile). However, this gives us yet another reason to make heaven our home as well. Please accept our warmest condolences, we are deeply sorry for your loss and will continue to lift the family up in prayer daily. Michael & Deborah Rudolph
