  1. Stevenson family, I grew up at Pleasant Ridge as Anne McCarty. Jim sent me news of your mother’s passing. I remember her well, especially from the quartet where she sang with my mother.
    I’m sorry I won’t be able to make it to the services tomorrow. I’ve been sick with the cold, etc that everyone has and need to stay in. But you will be in my thoughts tomorrow. I know my mom would have been by your side if she were still living.
    God be with you giving peace and comfort. Love, Anne Miller
