  • Kathy and Ed Sunseri

    Sorry for your loss, Bobbi. Anne was fortunate to have you all these years.

  • Aunt Annie was a grand lady and I was privileged to be part of her life for only a short time. My deceased husband Bob, loved her dearly. We never missed sending her “good” candy at Christmas. I will miss talking with her periodically on the phone. May she rest in peace.
