The Morrison family and the McKinney have been friends for many years! I will certainly miss Annie, but now she is rejoicing with many family and friends-one of which is my Mom, Louise McKinney. I will always remember Annie’s cooking and her great laugh. I am thinking of all of you during this sorrowful time. May God bless and keep you always.
