To her grandchildren she was Ahnana. She loved them so. Annaba was a special lady with a quick wit and sparkling blue eyes so full of love- and mischief. She grabbed ahold of your heart and held on. People loved her wherever she went and she never met a stranger. She left her mark of love, wherever she went. She will be missed.
