We miss Anna more and more every day, but feel blessed to have had her in our lives.
She was bold and brilliant.
Anna excelled at everything she did whether it was in school, sports, game nights, dance parties, or making people laugh. She was a natural leader, compassionate friend, faithful servant, obedient child, and wonderful sister to her three precious younger siblings.
She was encouraging and radiant.
Anna was unique in many ways, but especially in the way she loved others so deeply. She not only told many people who Christ is, she showed others what Christ-like love looks like. Her pursuit of Jesus was undeniably eager and exuberant. Through her legacy, she continues to encourage others to be more consistent, joyful, passionate, and thankful.
She was intentional and thoughtful.
Anna’s genuine spirit touched many and will live on forever. “When you create a difference in someone’s life, you not only impact their life, you impact everyone influenced by them throughout their lifetime.” Anna left an inspiring legacy here on Earth, for those that knew her are forever changed by her love. As Anna said “…Drop what the world deems as acceptable and do something spectacular – love one another.”
And most importantly, she will always be a child of God.
If you ask people who knew Anna to describe her, the first thing they will tell you is about her faith. Anna was and continues to be a believer in Jesus Christ as she is rejoicing with the angels, and spending eternity with the one who made her. And for those who share the same faith in Jesus Christ, I am confident we will be reunited with her in a place far better than we can begin to imagine.
