Lilliana, your grandmother was so proud of you. I'm one of her neighbors, and everytime I saw her, she would tell me the latest news about you and how she wished the very best of life for you. You and my daughter Lucy are about the same age. I know she loved you very much. We will all miss her. She was a lovely lady.

Ann was a much loved friend, though we saw each other only now and then, and a trusted fellow counselor. She was someone all her students could trust and count on. Even after retirement, when we saw each other we could find many special shared times and memories. The world is a little less bright without her.

Dear Anne’s family,
Many of my dearest memories of your mom was at Guilford Park. My parents lived down the street fromGPC and my husband Don & I were married there as attended while raising 2 daughters. Ann was in my circle and we became friends. She was always upbeat & fun! She gave me support & advise for my daughter who had ADHD. She was a great lady but I know you already know that! I am saddened to hear of her passing but know she is celebrating in heaven!

We were neighbors of Harold and Ann on Cottage Place for nearly 28 years, and fellow members of Guilford Park Presbyterian since the early 80's. Harold and Ann were just the very best that life has to offer in the way of friends and friendship. They were both taken from us far too soon, but Heaven is a better place for their being there!

I have fond memories of working with Ann at McLeansville Middle School when I was a new school health nurse. It was obvious that Ann cared deeply for the well being of all students. She did so much to help me transition into my new role at the school too. I was blessed to have the experience of working with her. My sincere condolences to her family and friends.
Rest In Peace Ann.
