  2. William, Bobby and family, You have our most sincere sympathy.Annie Mae was a sweet person and was our neighbor for all those many years. Mama was very fond of her and they were second cousins which I did not know until recently. Her grandfather Duncan and Mama’s father Doug were brothers. I remember those gorgeous hats she wore when I was a little girl. Seems like we knew her forever. She was always there when Mama and Daddy were sick and both passed away. May God bless you. Bradie Garner Taylor and Jean Boone,sister.
