Dear Joan and Family:

I was sadden to hear of the passing of Captain Ankcorn. I was a young firefighter when I was assign to Bill's crew and the years we spent together left me will a deep respect for not only my Captain, but for the man behind the uniform. I'll remember him with great fondness.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Joan and all your family. I just learned of Mr. Ankcorn's passing this morning. What a very special person he was to me. Having worked as an RN at Dr. Lielmanis' office for many years..I remembered the night he told me of his diagnosis with ALS..I was devastated for him..but how he continued his fight over the years. Joan, you were the"constant light" in his life..I'm back doing the yearly flu shots, and how I remember the last time I saw you both.You, Joan are an inspiration to me..God bless you all..Brenda Gaynor
