Aunt Ann,

So, as I understand it, I was supposed be a girl and going to be either Dorothy or Ann. Umm...sorry ‘bout that.
I’m so glad that Dad always brought me around in the younger years.
I remember how much you laughed the night I poured that drink on Nessie’s head!
There’s some kinda awesome reunion going on in heaven! Say hi to some people for us. You know.

We love you,

Kenny, Terri, and Eric

Ann, I will always remember the crazy sisters Lee talked about making purple and green rice so that your table would have pretty colors, but as years went on I got to know the loving and fun person that you were that had a smile that would light up the night sky. Though we didnt get to see you much, you will be so greatly missed. Your wonderful kids are your great legacy. Thank you for being part of my life and I love you...see you in heaven...keep everybody in there place till we get there...

Aunt Ann, I am very glad that I got to spend the last 2 + weeks with you. You are a very strong woman and made a decision that would be very hard for anyone to make, and I feel you made the right decision. I will always cherish the good days we had and your smiles and conversation. You fought a hard fight but I know you are no longer in any pain and at peace and with all of your loved ones in Heaven. You will be missed so much. Until we hopefully meet again one day, I Love You Very Much Aunt Ann!
