To my amazing mother in law Annie.
You brightened our world and made us laugh.
You were such a loving and caring person.
Your amazing effort and care to look after so many animals is inspiring and beautiful.
We are absolutely heartbroken.
Thinking of all your cherished and loved family.
To say we will miss you does not come close to describing how we feel.
Our only comfort is to know you are at peace with no more pain.
Rest In Peace my beautiful mother in law.
