Condolence: Annie was a beautiful soul, always filling every room with the best laugh the earth has ever heard. I will cherish the days we spent on the softball field, running on the beach in our matching neon green sports bras, and all good laughs we got to share. Sending all of my love and prayers to your family!

Condolence: Annie, I love you dearly. And I always will. This doesn’t feel real, I remember being so close in high school our senior year and so excited to finally go out to lunch together everyday with my new car. I loved your laugh and smile you always had that brightened up every room. You always gave me the best hugs and jokes. I’ll miss you dearly sweet girl. Sending my deepest condolences to the entire McCrate Family and all her loved ones. <3

Condolence: Daughter #1 is what I called you for many years. Your laughter and smiled filled my house with many wonderful memories. Hundreds of photos from softball, proms, and just being silly girls. These are the memories I will forever cherish. Our hearts are broken but we take comfort knowing you are at peace now. May God wrap his arms around your family and friends.

Condolence: Annie, my sweet angel.
I have so many memories I just want to shout out, but I would be sitting here typing for days.
Having a best friend like you in high school, brought out my shell. You always stood up for yourself and didn’t care what people think. You were inspiring, and always filled me with laughter. You were also my first work best friend, at MCL. We both disliked that job, but we still made the best of it!
I sometimes will pass your dad’s house, and get randomly hit with nostalgia.
Always going to your house after school and blasting music, while being silly young teens.
Talking about boys, and making food after school. Doing things every teenage girl does, and for that, I will never forget you as one of my high school best friends.
Thank you for everything you have done for me, and protecting me when needed.
I love you so much.
Sending prayers, a bunch of hugs and love to your family, friends and cat.

Condolence: Annie was always a source of laughter and light in any room she walked in. She was fiercely loyal, compassionate, and had so much love for so many people. I only hope she knew just how much she was loved by everyone around her. Sending so much love to her family and friends.
Condolence From: Lauren Kennedy, Westerville, Ohio
Condolence: Annie and I shared many memories and milestones together. She was the hardest working, dedicated, loving and passionate person I knew growing up. No matter where Annie went in life, who she was friends with, worked with, talked to, she brought energy and hope. I will forever cherish the bond and friendship, even sisterhood Annie and I shared. Thank you for some of the best years and memories of my life. To Kevin and Kim and Eric like my second family for a while, I am grateful to have shared a life with her and you all. May we always remember the amazing woman Annie was and appreciate the moments we had with her.

Condolence: Remembering that sweet little 4 yo face when we first met Annie at Little Blessings Preschool.
Then meeting her again when Claire started at Blendon Middle School. What an athlete! Annie was a beautiful young lady. Sending love your way.
