I am truly sorry for the loss of Elizabeth. Losing a loved ones is difficult, causing us deep sorrow. God is near to those who are broken hearted. (Psalms 34:18) May you cherish your fondest memories of times you spent together until the day you are reunited. (Acts 24:15)

Bill, Mike & Pat, Carole Anne & Bill, Lil' Bill & Karen ~ Aunt Anne was a beloved and special person -- compassionate, energetic, funny, happy, hard-working, politically aware, sports focused & someone who lived out her commitments to family & to her faith. You each have been supportive of her during her recent difficult times, & can now rest secure in the knowledge that she is beyond suffering and reunited with Uncle Mike -- and with our Lord and Savior. We all will miss her presence in our lives, but feel blessed by having known her & been loved by her. We in the extended Kuykendall family will continue to tell tales of the good ole days we shared, & those memories will help us & our children as we grieve her passing and the end of an era. Keeping you in our prayers as you adjust to her loss, Grace & Peace.
