May God be with you family. I grew up in Tazewell around the Sales family. I feel like we all was one big happy family. Annister was very blessed and loved. She will be missed. I know it's hard to lose a loved one so I want to say to the family, just be strong and have faith in The Lord, because with him all things are possible. I love you all my brothers and sisters in Christ!
