    She is remembered for the joy she brought in difficulty, understanding and support in good times. She is a dear friend and mentor. Rest, you paid your dues and helped others as they paid theirs. See you on the other side.

    Although I lost contact with Annette, I worked for she and Mickey at Motorsports. I remember her as very supportive of me. There were few females working there.
