Mrs. Ankeney raised a lad whose superb choice in life mates and parenting skills produced two talented, disciplined, and high achieving granddaughters. It is my prayer that Doug, Jean Ann, the girls, and the rest of you are able to ease your grief by celebrating an apparent life well lived that bettered the world.
