I'm sorry to hear that Aunt Anne has passed away. I always enjoyed my visits with her when I came to NC. Her great attitude was always refreshing. She could collaborate (some) of the stories my mother tells, although sometimes I think that the snake they ran into coming back from swimming has continued to grow over time.
