John and I are so sorry that we could not make it to the funeral. Instead of flowers, we donated that $60 to The Ende, Menzer, Walsh & Quinn Retirees', Widows' and Children's Assistance Fund. We send all of our love to those grieving Annie's passing.

Annie, you were so sweet to John and I, he was always amazed that you remembered his name and past conversations you had with him (especially since you had so many people in your family). Thank you for all of the funny memories and love!

Dear Family of Anne Butkus:

Seems different to call her Anne as we always called her Annie. So-so sorry to hear of her passing.

At such a time there isn't much that anyone can say, but many thoughts go out to you in sympathy today. And many hearts are hoping you'll find strength and comfort, too, in knowing others share the loss of Annie our sister-in-law and friend.

Love and God Bless,

Helen, Dick, and Family
