Uncle Charlie, Debbie, Charlene, Cindy, Patti,
I am so very sorry for your loss.
Aunt Ann was always such a beautiful, vibrant soul.
I will always be grateful for the many fond childhood memories I have of her; sleepovers, dinners, and those amazing Sauble cottage times together.
No words can take away your sorrow but may the many memories you have together bring you comfort and may you feel her loving warmth forever in your hearts.
Jeanine and family xo
