    My heartfelt condolences for the loss of your beloved, Anna. Please know that Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ is aware of your pain and they care for you. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) . I pray that you are able to find comfort in God’s promise of paradise where there will be no more pain and sorrow (Revelation 21:4,5)  and the many wonderful  memories of your beloved becoming a reality in the future  resurrection in paradise.  (Acts 24:15). Please accept my sincere condolences.

    Anna was a beautiful and fun-loving young lady! We are thankful for the times we shared camping and music concerts at the lake. Thank you for sharing her with us. She will be dearly missed. We pray for God’s tender loving arms to wrap around you and comfort you and your family.

  6. Carly Ratekin says:

    I am so sorry for your loss. I played golf with Anna and just remember always laughing around her. She never seemed to get frustrated by bad shots and was constantly joking around with everyone. You couldn’t help but feel happy around Anna. Her laughter and crazy antics will be so missed. My deepest sympathies to your family.

  7. Gary and Donna Tremblay says:

    Gil and Fred,

    Although we never had the opportunity to meet Anna personally, her life touched ours through the long standing friendship with her grandparents (Fritz and Rosie). They spoke highly of her compassion and successes but also of her struggles. Your entire family remains in our prayers as we express our deepest sympathies for your loss. May God bless you in this time of sorrow.

    Gil and Fred,

    Everyone who knew Anna absolutely loved and adored her, and we will all miss her forever. She was an absolutely beautiful young lady, inside and out, with tremendous grace in every sense of the word. You know Anna is still lighting up every room of her father’s house. It is just a different and bigger house that needed Anna’s light, even though the loss has dimmed our own.

    Much love,
    Patricia, Richard, Genevieve, and Giselle DeGrandchamp

    Fred and Gil,
    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful daughter Anna. She was a remarkable young woman in so many ways. And her life will never be forgotten. Her untimely death is a reminder of the words at 1Corinthians 15:26. I hope you can find comfort knowing that our Heavenly Father yearns to unite you to her again. May you find comfort and peace of mind through the comforting words recorded at John 6:40 and Revelation 21: 3-4.

    Dear Anna:

    I want to thank you for being a wonderful friend to my daughters. Here’s a poem I wish I had shared with you sooner:

    There is no reality; alas, there is no now.
    Only hope and memories are worthy of a bow.

    So live life to the fullest, and don’t forget to smile.
    Take time to smell the roses and live a life worthwhile.

    My father, Ben Winter, wrote this poem for me when I was a child. Anna, you were always smiling and took time to smell the roses. RIP dear one.

    Much love to the family and close friends of Anna,
