Annie, as the family referred to her, was my cousin. She was the youngest daughter of my father's sister Aunt Clare and her husband Uncle George. The times I had the pleasure of seeing and talking to her, she always had a smile, a kind word for everyone she knew and a tremendous penchant for the "find the words" puzzles. God Bless You Annie. You will be missed.

Ann was my baby sister, whom I have always been proud of n protective of.
Being a person with Downe Syndrome, everyday was challenging and everyday was rewarding for her.
U could always see n feel the love she brought to everyone she knew and met🎀💓💓💓🎀.
She was full of laughter, comical herself quiet often, sunshine on a rainy day, she showed so much in what pictures she would draw n explain about them when she would share that.
I remember all the things we did together when she was real young, since we were so close in age. I remember helping her to write n do math n drawing together. Playing with our shared Fischer price toys. She always hid one particular person from the batch of the old wooden round ones.. Boy that's along time ago.
But the one memory I will remember most n miss...
Is her warm great big tight hugs n her kisses on the cheek n the I Love you... That she always gave in her own time n own way.
Ann I will forever love n now miss u. I hope your journey home was a wonderful one and that u are now reunited with Mom, Dad, n John..
Your sister Cathi!
I LOVE YOU💕💞💖💗💝

Ann will be truly missed. She felt like family to me and it just broke my heart to hear of her passing. She had a picture on her bulletin board and would look at it often, so one day I asked her who was it and she said that's my aunt yes my aunt then gave a big smile. She loved to color and watch the Hallmark channel, especially Christmas shows. I understand that we are not here to stay forever, and we have to let go when it's time but I'll never let go of the memories we shared. I send my deepest sympathy to her family and friends and I thank God for allowing me to take part in her care. Please know that she was loved. Y. Lee - Cna
