When Ann and I met at a tea in Miami 40 years ago, we became fast friends. She was pure
Joy, fun, and love. She was smart, full of surprises with more talent than most. I so treasured time with Ann and know there will never be another so loyal, so kind. We’ll meet again some bright day and have lots of secrets to share. God’s speed, my precious friend.

I had the privilege of meeting this delightful woman, when her beloved son, Andy, married my dearest and best friend, Irene. What a close knit, wonderful family they became! I remember her love of laughter and her joie de vivre. Ronney and I send our heartfelt condolences to her family at this time of loss. Our hearts are with you.
