Ann, I will miss our long phone conversations. The link to the past in the Lewandowski family is closed. May you rest in peace. You have done your best.
My condolences to the family. May your loss bring a sense of togetherness.

I’ve been with Bear Creek AARP for fourteen (14) years and she was one of the people I have
learned to look up with respect.
Ann was an amazing person, she would always
share her best recipes and her knowledge about issues to everyone.
Months earlier, I approached her as usual during our meeting and told her that I admired her courage . Even with difficulty in moving around, she would try to be there.
At the end of our conversation, I told her she’s
one of the reasons why I still kept coming to the meeting and she answered likewise, to see old friends.
For Richard and his family, may you find peace
in your heart, knowing Ann left a good example
to us, her wisdom and what it’s like to live a wonderful life.
I will miss you Ann.....
