Dear Chris and Fred,

We wish to extend our sympathy to you as we are greatly saddened by the passing of your mom: our aunt Ann.

The family has lost a woman who will long be remembered for making a difference in many lives.

Your mom was easy to talk to because she listened well. She gave generously of her thoughts and ideas. Many times we were blessed to receive an unexpected and thoughtful gift from her. She was one of a kind and will be sorely missed.

Although, we will not be able to attend Fridays visitation our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you. I wish we weren't so far away.

With love and sympathy
Dave, Barb, Maria and Matt
