We met Miss Ann through Steve Burgess. I loved when they came to visit us in North Carolina. We introduced them to a little place in the mountains called Little Switzerland to get lunch at. She always wanted to go there when they came over. I will always have wonderful memories of the conversations we shared over the years.
