1: In Loving Memory of | Annamarie Villalobos | May 28, 1964 to April 6, 2011

2: I will never forget how she always made everyone feel so special and always greeted everyone with the biggest smile. Her smile brightened my day! I am going to miss our laughs we shared during lunch. I remember just Tuesday before she passed away we were laughing about how much she loved bubble gum and would chew five at a time if she could! She also shared how much she loved her sons and grandsons. They were her life she would always say. I always admired her outgoing, fun, loving personality and learned a lot from her. My daily routine at work will not be the same without her. I will treasure all the memories I have of her and she truly will be missed. Love always Samantha Hewitt

3: To the family of Annamarie Villalobos: I want to express my sincere sympathy for your loss. Annamarie was a wonderful person and co-worker. She had a way of making everyone feel welcome, comfortable, and special. I can still see that twinkle in her eye and smile on her face. I will miss her so much. Kathryn Schoemann


5: To the Family of Annamarie, I am very sorry for your sudden and tragic loss of Annamarie. She was a wonderful co-worker and friend, very upbeat and helpful. I admired her gracious spirit. We interacted for many years as co-workers to teasing each other, laughing, and supporting each other. Over the last few days I've been trying to remember the times we laughed together along with the many conversations that we had. Once I burst out laughing when she told me she thought I was dating a co-worker of ours. So not true, but we had a good laugh over it. Last weekend I found a picture I had taken of her from a HUB Gives volunteer day. I remember that day, we loaded her car all the way to the top with boxes that she alone would deliver to another non-profit organization. She was happy to be doing the hard work. I will miss her smile and her kind, encouraging words of wisdom. She all all of you, her family, are in my thoughts and prayers. Condolences, Bea Green

6: In Loving Memory of our friend Annamarie Annamarie was such a beautiful person inside and out. She always took the time to make sure everyone around her was happy. I will miss walking through the front door and seeing her face light up like we haven't seen each other in forever even though we saw each other every single day. Annamarie was so much more than just a co-worker to me. She was truly my friend. Life will not be the same with out her. I will miss her infectious smile, her silly laugh, her big bright eyes, her kindness, her loving spirit, our little heart to heart talks, hearing her brag about her sons and grandsons, and so much more. I know in my heart that she is watching over her sons and grand babies who she adored so much, and she is happy, free, and walking with our Lord. I will cherish every memory, always and forever. As I was looking for a picture of Annamaire, I came across her old myspace pager...Her quote will never leave me. "Live life for today, you never know when it is your last" My dear friend, I will miss you forever. Always in our thoughts, Forever in our hearts Love always, Melissa Jackson

7: A Better Place She's in a better place right now Than she's ever been before; All pain is gone; she's now at rest; Nothing troubles her anymore. It's we who feel the burden of Our sadness and our grief; We have to cry, to mourn our loss, Before we get relief. We know we'll reconnect with her At the end of each life's road; We'll see her cherished face again When we release our earthly load. ~ By Joanna Fuchs | We miss you now, our hearts are sore, As time goes by we miss you more, Your loving smile, your gentle face, No one can fill your vacant place ~Unknown~

8: Annamarie

9: I always looked forward to seeing Annamarie every morning at work... "Good morning Mr. York!" How I will miss the smile and the song-like greeting. For a few moments, the pressures of work or discouragement vanished each morning I would see her. Although I knew her for less than a year, she was a beautiful person indeed. At times like these I recall the refrain from the beautiful song "Eagles Wings" which goes: "And He will raise you up on eagles' wings, Bear you on the breath of dawn, Make you to shine like the sun, And hold you in the palm of his hand". Annamarie is with our Father. Maybe- Just maybe- He needs her!! Richard York

10: God looked around his garden and found an empty place He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest God's garden must be beautiful He always takes the best He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain He knew that you would never Get well on earth again He saw that the road was getting rough and the hills are hard to climb So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered, "Peace be thine" It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn't go alone For part of us went with you The day God called you home. ~Anonymous

11: In Loving Memory of Annamarie There are no words that can describe Annamarie's beauty, kindness and how much she will be truly missed. My heart is saddened that I will not be able to see her big brown eyes and her beautiful smile and tell her "Good Morning Sunshine", when I walk by the front desk but I know that she is now in peace and dancing in heaven with Jesus and his angels. She was a true friend to me and I will cherish her memories and will keep her in my heart forever. She will always be my "Good Morning Sunshine", because she "shined" and was beautiful to all of us. Love you always and forgetting you never, "Es"- Esther Hornbuckle | "Es"- Esther Hornbuckle

12: To the Loved Ones of Annamarie: Her dear face still comes to me when my thoughts turn to her as they often do lately. Her soft, big brown eyes and long lashes reminded me of a baby doe. The one word that we all seem to use to describe her is SWEET. She was gentle in her speech. She was always kind and helpful. She was extremely smart and efficient at whatever task she handled. My prayer is that she knew how much we cared about her while she worked with us and that she felt safe with us. My heart feels as though it is being ripped when I think that she had been suffering at the hands of the man she had tried to love. My guilt comes when I wonder if there was some sign I should have seen or if there was something I should have done. My only comfort is knowing without question that she is finally safe in our Lord's arms and that she will never be hurt again. My prayer is also for you. I hope you also know how much we care for you and how much we have all wept knowing that we can never see her again. Her beautiful heart touched us all and we are thankful for having known her. Love, Lisa Darling | Love

13: Just a note to let you know how much I truly enjoyed working with Annamarie. She had a way of making everyone feel important and special, by the way her face would light up and the tone of her voice when she saw you. She was the best receptionist I have ever worked with very Professional and friendly, the perfect personality for the job. My deepest condolences to the family as you all did truly lose an angel. Sincerely, Sherry Garcia | AMV

14: Dear Family of Annamarie, I am going to miss Annamarie big time. Her passing to the other side has left a void in my life. She helped me in many ways, not just at work but in my personal life. I have a washer and dryer because she referred me to a place she'd dealt with. I can wear my Mother's diamond ring because she told me about this great jeweler she found a couple of years ago that sized some jewelry for her while she waited. We were always sharing tid bits of information to make our lives easier. The walk to our cars each afternoon was the highlight of my day when we had our time together with no interruptions. It was a special time that I looked forward to and I'll miss those joyous moments in my days. Annamarie had such a gentle, bright, fun loving spirit and her light shown for all to see. She made you happy to be her friend to share special times with. It was an honor to have her friendship these last few years and be a person she cared about. I know she is grateful for the freedom she now has that she couldn't have on the planet and she will be watching over us as she loved her family and friends very much. Out last conversation was about our families and friendships. She was such a blessing in my life. I will miss her dearly and I look forward to catching up with her in the future and I hope to see her in my dreams. Many blessings, Gayle Beers

15: I only knew Annamarie for about 10 months but during that time she made a great impact on my life. It was always so good to go to our front office and see her smiling face. I do not ever remember seeing her with a frown on her face or ever saying a cross word to anyone or about anyone. Annamarie had the most beautiful tinkle of a laugh and little giggle that just brightened your day when you were around her. She was always complimenting you on what you wore that day, your jewelry or just telling you how nice you were. I will always remember her kind remarks and sweet smile. Annamarie was the ultimate person you wanted on your front desk and the first person you wanted your clients to meet. She was always so well groomed, poised and friendly. Me and our entire office miss her so much; she left some very big shoes to fill and a hole in our hearts. Vicie Reales

16: "Annamarie" I thought of you today but that is nothing new To share a laugh or two would make my day My heart aches in sadness with a million tears I know thousands of words won't bring you back No farewell words were spoken, no time For hugs or "goodbyes" I will always remember you Annamarie as a lovable, caring, amazing woman who accepted anyone with open arms including me. Veronica Chavez | Dear AnnaMarie, It is hard for me to even think about writing this note to you.. your picture is here at my desk and each time it catches my eye I find it hard to believe that you are gone. The way your smile warmed the room... it makes your death even more senseless. In the short time I knew you- not even a full year- you touched me in so many ways. From the cute little giggle when I would ring the bell at the front desk- just to hear it ring- to the whole hearted laugh when we ordered new items from Staples to "furnish" my cube... area rugs and throw pillows! I was SO SHOCKED when Ellen said that might be taking it a bit too far!!! :-) I know that you are in a better place, warm, safe, and loved, but that does not mean I will stop missing you....until we meet again my friend. Love, Betsy Mease

18: Anna Marie, my friend: "If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand." This is how I feel about you Anna Marie. You are always bright and shiny like the stars. You make everyone feel important and special. I thank God for bringing you into my life. No matter how my day was going I knew seeing your beautiful smile would make it a special day. The chatting and laughing together brought so much sunshine and joy in my life. My heart is broken to think of what you have been through. You never deserved the darkness that was in your life. You took care of me when I was in need and I will always be grateful for your kindness. In spite of it all, you have blessed us with your beautiful smile and generous kindness. The world will not be the same without you and I will hold you in my heart always. I will think of that beautiful smile and how your time here provided so much of God's grace in the way you treated those around you. I admire the pride you have in being a mom and grandma. I have no doubt you were the best mom and grandma you could be. I will cherish the time we spent together and will be a better person for knowing you. "I dropped a tear in the ocean. The day you find it is the day I will stop missing you." With love and friendship always, Melissa J. P.S. Ordering supplies will never be the same without you to giggle and snicker about it with. :) Thank you for being you! | Friendship

19: To Annamarie's Family: I was shocked to learn of the tragedy which hit your family recently and am still in disbelief. Annamarie was so full of life and will be deeply missed. I know it's a very sad time for HUB employees and our hearts are heavy. I am so sorry and wanted you to know my deepest sympathies are with you. Although I never had the privilege of getting to know Annamarie as well as I would have liked, I do know without a doubt she was a beautiful person on the inside and out. She was always so kind, cheerful and helpful, and I can't imagine going into the HUB office without having Annamarie greet me with her beautiful, smiling face. I know you are devastated over what happened to your precious loved one and just wanted you to know all who knew Annamarie were blessed by her helpful, kind and joyful spirit. I am told she was a woman of faith, so may it also bring you comfort to believe you will see her again some day in eternity. It's hard to understand why a loved one is taken too soon from us, before we had a chance to say goodbye (I lost a son unexpectedly 6 months ago and can somewhat relate to your grief, although I understand grief is personal and unique). I will keep praying that you all will eventually find joy in the treasured memories you have of Annamarie, growing in strength day by day, and find peace and healing in your hearts from this senseless tragedy. I am grateful to have known Annamarie. Lynn Baker Steamboat Springs

20: Little did we know that morning God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Out family chain is broken and nothing seems the same. But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

21: When my thoughts turn to Annamarie, the only picture that comes to me is of her contagious smile and the only sound that I hear is that of her infectious laughter. We have lost a dear mother, grandmother, daughter and friend, but her life, short as it was, was a beautiful gift to all of us. She could make the crankiest among us, grin and move on to a better day. When Annamarie came to Gemini/Hub, we were all enriched by her presence- ultimately professional and ultimately caring. She loved all of us and we loved her. We are better people because she was, and will continue to be a part of our lives. We miss her dearly. Sherry Soule

22: To my friend and co-worker, Anna Marie: Words are not sufficient to describe my feelings surrounding your death. I've gone through the shock of what happened, the utter sadness at how and why it happened, and finally the overwhelming grief of it all. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. I so feel empathy for your mother who has had to endure the almost unbearable duty of saying good-bye to her child--it is absolutely the hardest thing a parent will ever have to do. Your children will struggle with the loss of their rock and foundation, and I wish them strength to see this through. Your grandchildren will so miss out on all the "Grandmother Get To Do's", but your memory will always remain for them. Your other family members and friends will think fondly of the experiences you shared, and hopefully remember the good times more so than the bad. As for me, I will miss my friend and co-worker. You're funny, kind and generous person- the one who spoke so well of HUB and all of us with your appearance, your graciousness towards clients and visitors, and your never failing to assist any of us with anything we asked of you. So rest well, my friend, I will forever miss you. Linda Wilkerson

23: Each day it is a little bit less of a struggle with the grieving process towards the loss of our dear friend Annamarie. She was here one day and gone the next. She definitely left a lasting impression on all of us and gave us a little piece of her sparkling personality. She had a way of making everyone who walked through the door at HUB feel like they were in the right place. Annamarie had a delightful way of being “in the moment” and she shared that with everyone through her beautiful smile and contagious laugh. She made each person feel as though they were uniquely special and she always presented herself as a poised professional. She was loved by her colleagues and she will be sadly missed. One of the wonderful things about Annamarie was that she was very honest and you could always count on her to tell you the truth about things. A simplistic view of this would be that if you asked Annamarie about the way you looked that day, she would give you an honest response with practical feedback. Like, the dress looks great, but the shoes are the wrong color. It sounds crazy, but it was as if she understood that you were asking an underlying question. If you were doubting your appearance that day, she would always make you laugh, bring you back to a happy place and then just get right back to work. Annamarie had a flow with her work, with the people she worked with, and she was always “on”. She took it upon herself to offer up a positive word to everyone in the office when she thought they looked sharp, were well dressed, and when they looked like they were on-top of their game. She kept the front office running smoothly and others noticed and appreciated that about her. The last day that I saw Annamarie she told me how one of our clients had come into the office to pay a bill. He said that he had paid a bill once before in our office and a tall, good looking girl with blonde hair had helped him. Annamarie knew he was talking about me and she made sure she gave me that message. It was her way of letting me know that I had value, that I was beautiful and that others acknowledged that about me. That was how Annamarie was with everyone. She had a wonderful way of communicating with people by letting them know how individually unique, valued and appreciated they were. Reina Payne

24: Reflections on Annamarie Villalobos for her family... The tragedy of Annamarie’s death has been overwhelming to us all, but it is the beauty of her life and how she treated others that I most hope we can cling to in honor of her memory. The Book of Ruth in the Old Testament tells the story of Ruth, a young widow who decided to devote her life to taking care of her mother-in-law “Naomi.” For the time and the culture it was a very unusual and unselfish decision, as it effectively destined Ruth for a life of little means and public disregard. Yet Ruth’s decision to honor Naomi and serve others before herself reflected her great character. When I think of Ruth, I think of Annamarie. Quiet, unassuming, and pleasant Annamarie approached life with a sense of humility and always looked to the needs of others before herself. Working as the company’s receptionist, she went out of her way to take care of others – be it with a warm greeting and the offer of a cup of coffee or cleaning up the messes that I and others would leave behind in the conference room. She had the patience to teach me – several times – how to use the scanner and other office equipment in her domain. And despite all the activity.guests in the lobby, the phone ringing, checking the computer, changing messages on the sign board, delivering mail, organizing the conference room, etc Annamarie always had time and a smile for others. I honestly have no recollection of her being anything other than helpful, pleasant, and caring towards all with whom she came in contact. And today we know she carried this demeanor despite tremendous personal burdens and conflict – so we must add “courageous” to the list of her many good qualities. Annamarie was a gift to us all, and we will miss her deeply. Our sole comfort comes from the the belief that she is now unbroken, healed, and in God’s hands. Over time let us remember not how she died – but how she lived with us for awhile and now continues in Heaven. And. we shall see her again. Blessings, Annamarie.we miss you, and we will always remember you! Matt Coleman, President/Chief Sales Officer

26: I shall always remember Annamarie's smile and her contagious laugh. I had the pleasure to work with her for only two years but feel I had known her forever. That is how she made people feel, warm, comforted and happy. We had a thing she and I, she would call me "The Boss Lady" and I would always tell her "I'm not the Boss of you" and we would laugh.............I miss my friend and think of her daily. Annamarie I will laugh with you again some day. Peace and love to your family, hugs and kisses to your grand children. Love Emily Brown

27: I had the pleasure of working with Annamarie from her very first day with Gemini. As with everyone I appreciated that she always had a smile and a positive attitude. I said many times- Annamarie was without question the very best receptionist that I have ever worked with in my life. Being 53 years old, you know I have had many jobs! Annamarie always was willing to help you, in fact you didn't even have to ask. I can think of a few times where she would just look at my face and say "come on Maryann, let me help you- we will get it done!" She always made me laugh with her silliness too. Unfortunately I was aware of a lot of the bad things that had happened to Annamarie. What amazed me was how she could tell me about something terrible that had happened the night before and then a fellow employee would walk through the door and she would greet them with her wonderful Annamarie good morning that we all were use to. She remained professional at all times. I was also impressed at how professional she always looked, never a hair out of place. She was a great hair dresser too. I went to beauty school right out of high school. I told Annamarie this school was wasted on me, she was such a natural at it! She was always giving me tips to make my hair look! Annamarie was such a kind giving person. She gave me a really good hairbrush that she thought would work on my hair better. One day she brought me in a heart necklace that she didn't wear, knowing I had a thing for heart jewelry. Annamarie paid attention to people. Many people go through life only thinking of themselves, not her. She was a wonderful girl and their is a reason she was taken to heaven early, we just don't know what it is right now. I will never forget her. Maryann Marrow

28: Things I will miss most about Annamarie – Her laugh that was sincere; Her smile that was as sunny as her disposition; Her kind soul that was always displayed in her actions; Her eyes that sparkled when her son and grandson would come visit her at work; Her beauty not only on the outside, but on the inside; Her willingness to help others – always; Her vulnerability and innocence of a child. Annamarie was a rare gem – I am sorry I never told her how much she meant to me. We take for granted what is in front of us everyday, and only realize how much someone means to us when they have been taken away or have gone away. I will miss her every day and remember her spirit always. I am grateful to have known her. May she rest in peace Penny Jolie

29: To Annamarie’s family, I offer this reading that I hope brings comfort to you. Annamarie was such a delightful and sweet person. She is very much missed. Jeanette Machisic Assist Vice President HUB International- Denver | His Everlasting Arms I cried, Lord, I am so afraid tonight. There’s no rest for my soul. Besieged by worry, fear, and pain, I tossed and turned and rolled. I prayed, Lord, send your angel. Someone to hold my hand, Someone to touch my broken heart. And say, “I understand.” I prayed, Lord, send a candle To light this long, dark night, A flame to warm and cheer me, To set my soul aright. I prayed, Lord, send Then, that was all. For what He sent to me Was peace. His everlasting arms Carried me off To Sleep. | Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles. 2Corinthians 1:3-4 | “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort yo,.”declares the Lord. Isaiah 66:13
