Notes for Annabelle

It’s been great to watch you grow over the years. Peace to you and never cease to find your Creator in the things created!

Annabelle- thank you for serving as Chamberlain your sophomore year. I was glad to get to know you in that way, and all the conversations we had after that as well. Wish you the best. Congrats!

Congrats, Annabelle. You earned this achievement. I’m celebrating with you!

Congratulations Annabelle! You have blessed many with your thoughtful and caring spirit. I look forward to seeing where the Lord leads you.

Congratulations Annabelle! I am so proud of you! I am so glad to have known you and see you grow through the last 4 wild, strange years. You are a great encourgament to many, and especially loved by QE1. Excited to see whar God has in store for you. Love you!

You are my sister! You are also my brilliant, kind and loyal peer! You’re best friend but I also got work with you on the student newspaper! When you ask me for journalism advice, my heart melts. That’s why I feel okay asking you advice on how to better help and love people because that’s what you’re best in the world at. I could write 10000099282 pages filled with affirmation and memories of our years at King’s. I’ll save that for when you get back Brooklyn.

Annabelle, I truly don’t know what my time at King’s would have looked like without you. You are so kind and caring. You stand by people even when they’re at their worst or lowest. You made me laugh so hard I cried the first night we hung out and you’ve continued to make me laugh ever since! You give the best advice and have such wonderful insight. Strong, soft, genuine, funny, wise, thoughtful, tenacious, sweet, beautiful Annabelle, I love you so much. You made it through a TOUGH four years and I think you are even more incredible now than when I met you freshman year. No matter how difficult things were, you were courageous and kind. You deserve all the congrats and more! Love you always.

Congratulations on graduating from The King’s College! Quebec feels like a long time ago and it is amazing to see what you have accomplished in the past several years. All the best in your future!


As my big, you have been so kind to me. As a friend, you’ve proven fiercely loyal and generous to everyone you know. As a human, your heart overflows with contagious love and bless all around you. You’ve done great things and will continue on to do so beyond King’s. You are a fighter and I’m proud to have known you. You are very very well loved.

Annabelle, we weren’t able to spend much time together due to our schedules, but you gave me one of my favorite King’s memories. Ever since our two-hour conversation over the Greenwich front desk during midterms week, I loved walking home during your shift and saying hello, knowing that we had shared secrets and found kindred spirits in one another. You have such a beautiful, gracious, and selfless soul, and I will never not admire you. Congratulations on all that you have achieved!

I’ll never forget the day I freaked out in micro and you stayed behind to give me a hug. You’re such a kind, compassionate person and are going to do such great things! Congratulations!!

Annabelle, I only got to know you a short time and the majority of that was spent at the beginning of the shutdown. I am amazed by how wonderfully big-hearted you are in the midst of all you’ve been through. May you have joy in the years to come. You deserve it.

Annabelle, where do I even begin? Your kind spirit and gentle love for others are qualities I admire so greatly. You would give anything for those you love and you care for people so deeply. I will always remember our late-night chats and the loving outlook you brought into every conversation. I wish we could explore the MET together today to celebrate! I can’t wait to see you again soon and explore NYC with you.

You’re such a cool person, and I’m grateful to have gotten to know you these four years. (Your thoughts on Instagram often inspire me and get me thinking.) I’m excited to see what God has in store for you!

We are so happy for you! Congratulations on your graduation from a very notable college! May the the Lord use you mightily for His kingdom!

Annabelle, you have such a beautiful soul and are so kind. I hope that you can spend lots of time at the Met when it reopens. You are going to CRUSH post grad life!

You are a blessing! I am so proud of you and everything you have been able accomplish. Congratulations


I was honored to serve alongside of you as Chamberlain our sophomore year, and I was able to catch glimpses of that selfless, compassionate, benevolent soul at work. Your care and concern and love for the girls in your House was a sight to behold. You embodied grace, discernment, and monarchy in everything you did. I always admired how fiercely you protected and cared for the people that mattered to you. “There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.”

I wish you nothing but the best in the years to come. May God greatly bless you.

Annabelle, I look back fondly at our time in Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict class! You have such a kind heart, and it’s definitely contagious. Congratulations on your hard work!

Annabelle! You are so incredibly kind, thoughtful, and strong. I admire your strength and grit through the hard times, and how you maintain your soft kindness through all of it. Keep in touch!

You are literally the sweetest person with the kindest soul and I’m so grateful I’ve had the opportunity to be one of your fellow classmates. Also, I will always be so thankful for you putting up with me during the Israel trip where I was just a mess (we found out later I was just recovering from Mono though which explained a lot, but still, I don’t think I would’ve survived those ten days without you). I can’t wait to hear about all of the amazing things you will do in the future. I wish you all the best!


Thank you for your compassion, encouragement, and quiet reassurance that everything will be okay throughout my freshman year. Your leadership on QE1 exec was so influential to my experience of the House and I am grateful! Wishing you all the best beyond King’s!

Annabelle. I hope you know that you’re the fricken best (just in case I don’t tell you enough) and that you have absolutely crushed these past four years. I have never seen so much grace, persistence, and beauty in one person – and you fought for so many people through some of the craziest situations. I’m forever thankful beyond words for the house that made us sisters, and for the millions of laughs and tears that we have shared. You’re one of a kind, a rockstar, and one of the best humans in the world. I’m sorry that the end of your senior year is nothing like you would have ever expected, but I hope that so many unexpected joys pop up in spite of change. Either way – I’m here for it.

Love, Abby

P.S. H.A.G.S. (Have a great summer!)

You are an absolute ray of sunshine!! You are such a strong, beautiful woman who works hard at all you do. I am SO proud to call you my grand-big. You have left such a legacy for QE1 and our Dynasty. I am constantly in awe of you quiet strength and loyalty to those you love. It is a privilege to be part of your life.


You are such a beautiful, graceful person who inspires the people around you to look for the beauty in every situation. Thank you for all you have done for this school, for QE1, and for me personally. I wish you the best in the years to come!

It has been the biggest blessing to know you, serve with you, and be your friend. Your heart for justice shines so bright. Your dedication for helping those around you is one of my favorite things about you. So excited for your new adventure as Ms. Ford! Your kiddos are going to LOVE YOU!!!

Annabelle you beautiful sweet loving angel, I am so happy to have met you. You’re a star. I’m so proud of you. College is DONE. And you can do absolutely anything. I love you lots and lots!!

Sweet Annabelle, CONGRATULATIONS on a job SO well done. Thank you for braving New York City with me. I will always remember the challenging times when you showed up for me, but even more engrained are the times when my friendship with you brought such abundant joy: days spent wandering the met, exploring the National Mall on the hottest day of summer, building snowmen in Battery Park, finding a fairy tale bar in Brooklyn, after-church coffee shop chats, and too many more to count. The passion and commitment that you bring to everything you do, from the smallest babysitting job to the biggest, most prestigious internship (and you’ve completed many), inspires me. I am so proud of you, and can’t wait to see you shine in your NEW JOB! Love you so so much!!!

Annabelle, you are so special to anyone who has ever met you. Love you very much and so proud to call you my grandaughter. You have accomplished so much and you’re just started a career in a city you love. Exciting.

You are always in my prayers.

Annabelle, I am so proud of you! You will forever be my Chamberlain — QE1 loves you, and will be missing you this next year.


I am so proud of you! I am so thankful the work God has done in your life over the past four years.

As I read the comments and congratulations from your friends and professors I realize there is nothing more important in life than how well you love others. During the most painful season of your life we wanted you to return home to heal, your words are as real to me today as they were in the moment, “I ran for chamberlain to help the women of QE1, I won’t leave them now.” Your younger brother reminded me that I would hope for some one ‘like Annabelle’ to help them in college, if they were hurting. That is something I could not deny.

Thank you for loving God, your family, your friends and others. I can’t wait to see the next chapter of your life unfold.

We love you!

Annabelle! Congrats! Thank you for being such a large part in shaping my freshman experience, on exec, alongside so many wonderful people. I had such a great example to look up to for what it looks like to be a Queen and King’s student. I will appreciate knowing you forever! Xo.

My Annabelle,

I remember on House Retreat your freshman year, all of the upperclassmen were saying “I want Annabelle to be my little.” Ironically, you were the one freshman I hadn’t met yet, so I had no idea what everyone was talking about. But shortly after meeting you, I joined the crew. I so strongly wanted you to be my little, too.

Since meeting you, I have seen, heard, and learned so much from you. You have shown so much strength that should have never been asked of you, spoke humility and sincerity into conversations that needed it, and taught me so much about love and life. You are the strongest person I know, but you don’t let that overshadow anyone else. You love others so well and always stand up for the underdog. I love you forever, and I am so proud and grateful to know you!

Keep showin em who Annabelle Ford is!! I love you!


You were one of the first people I knew when I came to Kings. You served as chamberlain for QE1 my freshman year– the love and care you showed helped me through even the toughest days. I am so thankful that you were part of my Kings experience. I know you will go on to do incredible things! Congratulations!!

My dearest Annabelle,
When you choose NYC to complete your education we were apprehensive. Would you be safe? You had no one there, who would feed you and comfort you, so far from the people that loved you? But you persevered and fought and thrived! When I read the eloquent praises of your professors and classmates, it becomes clear that this was where GOD had placed you.
Today we celebrate your accomplishments. I want you to know we celebrate you everyday of your life. You arrived into the world on Christmas Eve, we should of known you were destined for great things! God blessed us with a child that had a servant’s heart, naturally. Your quite, sweet spirit, your fierce fight for justice and ability to see the good in others are only part of your beauty.
I am so proud of you. You have blessed us beyond our wildest dreams. Now we look forward to your future and all that it holds. I love you.

Annabelle! You are such a graceful and magnificent queen! I love you and I pray that God will bless you in all your future endeavors!

Thank you for being YOU! I love everything about who you are. You are a great friend to everyone you meet, and you are a JOY to be around. You are a good leader and a great listener. You have all the giftings to be an amazing advocate for those who need help and rescue. I think you are so beautiful inside and out, and I’m so grateful that I got to know you these last few years in the halls of King’s and 90 Washington. I’ve loved our conversations in Battery Park, our days at the MET, and being with you at QE1 events. You led the way for me in so many aspects of finding my own healing in my own story. It meant so much to me being able to connect with you on the things that have been really tough. I hope these words of affirmation on this “digital yearbook” and all the hugs you will get today and in the next year to say “congratulations” make you feel refreshed, fulfilled, and loved! I love you! Congratulations!!!

Annabelle, it has been wonderful to see you grow and thrive while away at school. You have followed your heart and that has led you in all of the right places for you. Keep on this path and we will all excitedly watch for what comes next!
Congratulations and Good Luck with your journey!
Love Noelle Stanley

Annabelle, congratulations on finishing strong! You were such a sweet Helmsman my first year at King’s and I am grateful to you for helping make that transition into the House and the City easier. I remember once that I didn’t have dinner and you bought me Pret, sat at a table with me, asked about how I was doing. It wasn’t planned or elaborate–it was just kind. Never stop loving on people in little ways like that. Your kindness and compassion mean so much. Never forget how loved you are and go face the world with your gentle spirit and kind heart!

Annabelle, Before they close the digital yearbook, I wanted to congratulate you on earning your degree! It was a pleasure to have you in Foundations of Politics, and I am pleased that we stayed in touch beyond your first year. Indeed, I look forward to staying in touch in the years ahead. Wishing you many blessings and much happiness.

You were one of the first people I met at King’s when I stayed with you during Interregnum your freshman year. Your kindness and compassion are contagious, and you are the epitome of an attic princess. Thanks for showing me that strength doesn’t always have to be loud. You made King’s a better place. <3

Miss lady annabelle,
