Thank you for signing Rebecca Anne Blow's Guestbook
You will be missed Anne. Raleigh and I have known you for our entire 41 years together . It was always good to see you when you and Pete could get back for a visit. I can't believe you are gone. But what a Grand re-union it will be in Heaven someday when we all get to meet again in our heavenly bodies. What a wonderful day that will be. Love you Anne. ! Terry Hensley

Such a sweet lady I only knew for a short while. We met at a Bible Study and her desire to know our Lord and experience His words were infectious. I looked forward to seeing her bright face and beautiful smile every Tuesday evening. Yes, my heart broke when I heard the news of her passing. She fought a good fight, but I guess God wanted her now. I will never forget her and how precious she was. She had called me about a month ago and we talked briefly how much she wanted to get better. We prayed together and promised each other we would meet soon when she was able to leave the house. I will hold her memory in my heart forever. I will try really hard to attend her service, but every Thursday I go with my husband for his cancer treatments. I am hoping we get done quickly this week and I can meet the family and attend her service.

Monday my heart broke when I heard that my sweet friend went to Heaven. She was such a special lady! The type of woman who would do anything for anyone. I am so relieved that she doesn't have to fight the fight anymore that she did for over two years.God Bless you Annie.

Ann was the first friend I made when we moved to SC. She was always happy and smiling and had a good word for everybody. She was a good friend and I will miss her greatly. Prayers for her husband Pete and son Bruce. Rest easy sweet angel in the loving arms of Jesus.

Ann was one of the first neighbors I met when my wife and I moved in. She was always walking around the neighborhood greeting new people. She was one of the group of women who got together for a monthly lunch in our Hoa. She will be missed.
