    Ann has a very special place in our hearts. No doubt she is enjoying her new heavenly home right now – breathing easily, pain free. But we will miss her. Ron, the toy kitty that you and Ann gave to our grandson, Jacob, when he broke his leg last year – he sleeps with it every night and he remembers who gave it to him even though he was only 2 1/2. Ann always thought of others and how she could comfort them. We will miss her piano music, her strawberry jam and so many more wonderful things – but we have Ann’s memory in our hearts and she leaves us a wonderful legacy by showing us all how to love Jesus Christ and live our lives to please Him. God Bless you Ron and the whole family as you grieve the loss of this beautiful person.

    Ann was a lovely person and we will miss her. Every time we go to the symphony we will think of her. Her courage to carry on while she didn’t feel well, is an inspiration to us all. Prayers and thoughts are with you today.
