Memories Timeline


  1. I remember Mrs. Annie because she was probably the first lady we received our food from each day in the Hughes Springs school cafeteria. She was so sweet and I remember how she made us feel loved. I think she might have handed out those wonderful rolls that the cafeteria was known for in those days. Oh, I wish everyone had a Mrs. Annie in their lunchroom. God bless her family!!

  2. Praise God for women like Annie Crossland! Her rolls were absolutely the best. May you know that she was loved and loved others.
