I met Ann when we were in 5th grade at Elizabeth school. I had lost touch but saw the obituary in the Charlotte Observer first thing today. We used to climb a tree at her house on 7th street to watch football games at Memorial Stadium. I am sorry she is no longer with us. Claire Mae (Broome) Waller
