What a great picture to remember Granny Annie by. She was always kind and sweet to me, and I am not the easiest person to be kind and sweet to. She made the best bread and cinnamon rolls this world ever tasted and now I wish I had asked her to teach me how to bake them. I am thankful and blessed by having known her and will miss her. My continued prayers and thoughts to her friends and family, especially the little ones. Losing your grandma is a very difficult thing. God Bless. Love, Will Schreiner
