Annie Wersching’s husband, Stephen Full, issued the following statement. “Today there is a deep hole in the soul of this family. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found the wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t need music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. Go find her. She is everywhere. And we will find it. As she led our children, the true loves of her life, up the winding driveway and down the street, she was screaming GOODBYE! Until we walked away from the world. I can still hear it ring. Goodbye Buddie. I love you little family.”
Rest in peace.
