"Have some." It is one of those things that people in South say when they are showing consideration. It is said with as much emphasis and enthusiasm as the "have a blessed day" after you finish your transaction at Walgreens. Annie said "have some", she was speaking of friendship and she really meant it. Annie would say "have some" to grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and young ones. She meant, "have some" of this motherly love and she gave it wholeheartedly. When Annie shared, whether it was her last piece of grilled chicken or one of an endless stream of free hugs, she gave it with no thought of age, color, or station. "Have some, she'd say as if her coffer never emptied. Annie suffered many losses in this life but instead of focusing on the loss, she set her sights on giving. She fixed her soul and every movement of those longs slender fingers on giving and providing love. There was a letter in an album at the house that read;
" Dear Anne, do you remember me. I live by you! I am 11 years old. I am in 5th grade. I really missed you! You were very nice. I wish I can visit you! You were the best person ever!
This sentiment is shared by all of us right now, none more than the love of her life, Mr. Larry Cosby. Annie is missed dearly by Mr. Larry Cosby, the man who loved her, Sally Ross; the aunt who mothered her, Mikayla; her sweetest baby, the children she mothered, nieces, nephews, family, and dear friends along with all those lucky enough to share the memory of Mrs. Ann L. Cosby.
