I never got to know Annie but my mother Gladys Simpson Heard spoke of her often. I believe she would be my Great Great Aunt. I am trying to learn more about my family roots. Ada Simpson Boyd was my beloved grandmother.

Special moments have come and gone. When you smiled it all seemed right. Don’t worry, now we're all grown. I'll miss your essence morning, noon, and night. You were always strong and always on the go, Mom, now you rest and let God's company be with you ever so
