Never had a better friend. We lived next door to each other for 10 years. Ann was always there for me in good and bad times and we had fun times together. She is loved and will be missed by all who were part of her life.

I always kidded Mom that it was her fault I was in the family. I crashed MaryAnn's 16th birthday party, I was not invited and went anyway. Knocked on the back door this pregnant woman answers and I say " I'm here for the birthday party" she replies, "they're all in the basement, come on in. The rest is history, BTW the unborn baby was Barbara! Mom would laugh and smack me when I would tell her this! Love you, Mom!!

She was a sweet and strong woman with a great sense of humor and of family. I remember her driving us to school and singing with the radio and coming across the street and my mother would do her hair. They would chat like two high school girls and laugh. Any one who knew her shares in the grief of her family. God bless and keep you Mrs. Toritto.
