    We are so sorry to hear of Anna Maes passing. She was an incredible lady and will be missed by so many. I will always remember her contagious smile and laugh, waiting tables at the Med. with her and having fun visits. For over 30 years, when we come home for the golf tournament, our paths would meet somewhere in town. She was always so caring and interested in what was going on in our family and my parents. What a great lady. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Take care…Steve and Gretch
