Condolences for Maria Antonietta “Anni” Parra

I got to know Anni through our company's work with Talbert & Bright. She was always friendly, smiling, and helpful...especially helping us sometimes as vendors to get paid! She had a helping, "do good" spirit about her. Very sad to her of this.

To Debbie, the Parra family and friends, I hope and pray for love, peace and understanding during this time. Anni and I were very close as children we first met in 1st and 2nd grade. We lived across the street from each other and spent many summers together! Our song was “Seasons in the sun”. We loved to read and play dolls and she was the most genuine sweet hearted friend I’ve ever had. Annis’ smile was infectious! Beautiful is how I will always remember Annie! My sincere condolences to everyone who knew and loved Anni. May God bless you ❤️

Anni had an uncanny ability to make all those whose lives she touched know that they were important, that they were special, that they truly mattered, and were genuinely appreciated. Her “megawatt” smile lit up the world, along with her flashing, dancing eyes. Deb, I hope that the love of all your friends and family can somehow help fill the void in your heart. We are all diminished by Anni’s passing, and hope we can, in some small way, make your heavy heart lighter.

This so perfectly describes my cousin Anni. She had the biggest heart, always so genuine. Life took her to soon and she is missed so by our family. Her smile was the best and we all knew her as lil Joan Jett. Her hair since a teen was always “bad ass” RIP Cousin, love you!

The Parra family lost a daughter and there oldest sister Lori Nov 18, 2018. And suddenly, just like that Anni, the youngest daughter and sister was taken home December 28, 2018. Oh what a celebration she is having with her mother, her brother Willie, her sister Lori and there Savior and God Jesus Christ. We rejoice for you Anni, but...we are still very heartbroken and sad because we miss you so, and we didn’t get to say goodbye. I Never Got To Say Goodbye Awake, I'm thinking of you. Asleep, I'm dreaming of you. I'm thinking and crying, I'm sleeping and weeping. The pain that I have lost you cannot be eased. My desire to be with you cannot be pleased. Some people say time will heal the pain. In my heart your memories will FOREVER remain.

Anni always had a smile on her face. Walking her beloved pups thru the neighborhood, having a beet, hanging on the porch. She was a beautiful lady with a beautiful spirit.
