The Morgans

Anna’s lamp is full and her light will forever burn brightly.
A cherished friend, she touched our lives in countless ways.
Always compassionately caring for those around her, she gave freely of herself. Never seeking recognition, she worked tirelessly to make the quality of everyone else’s lives better, even when it was a burden to hers.
We are blessed to have shared life with her.
Our Memories Are A Gift, Never Forgotten!
