This sweet lady was my very much loved sister in law. She had such a gentle and kind soul.

I know she is in Heaven with her beloved husband and family but our hearts are truly broken.

Please continue to pray for precious Tina and the rest of the family.

Ann has always been so nice to have conversations with. I have known her since 1964 when I worked with her sister, Martha. Penny and Tina, Buddy and I send our sympathy. Death is always hard but more difficult during a holiday period. May God comfort you as you enter a new life without her.❤❤

Prayers with the Cothern and Ray family for healing with the passing of Ann.

I loved Ann so much, though not blood related, I knew she loved me too. My parents, her, and Darryel were close friends and neighbors for many years. She was the best cook ever and taught me how to make food taste better.

My heart is aching and so honored to have been part of her life. Tina did an outstanding job not only as a daughter, but the best caregiver. Love to everyone.
