We are so saddened by the loss of my brother-in-law’s mother, Anne Burrows. Anne was the matriarch of the Burrows family, and person of great integrity. We know how much she loved her son’s and grandchildren. Her family meant everything to her. We will always remember her humor, and celebrate her delicious authentic Italian spaghetti sauce that she shared the recipe with us once a long time ago. God Bless all of the family and Friends who share in the grief of losing this lovely and beautiful lady.
With Love and Sympathy,
Juan, Suzie, Neva and Jase Rios

We were so sorry to hear of Aunt Anne’s passing. She was such
a good person and so much fun. We have a lot of wonderful memories of her. We especially enjoyed our time with
her when she came to visit us in Charlotte with Mom. It was a great
