Words cannot express. I will keep the family in prayer during these moments of pain. Hold on to the memories. I will remember Ann, who encouraged me, made sure I stayed focused when I veered off in the wrong direction and made me laugh. Rest in Heaven.

I am saddened to know that my dear friend for over 60 years has entered the Pearly Gates.
I met Ann our freshman year at Livingstone College. Ann was a genuine person! I will miss my dear friend.

“Aunt Ann”
No matter how long it would have been since I last saw her, she and I would always have something to laugh about. I was honored to call her Aunt Ann. To Anita, Angela, Alfred, and Amanda, May the Peace of God be upon you.
Love,
Carolyn Ijames
