Ronnie and I will always cherish the memories of dear sweet Ann. She was quick to give her opinion and she had a great sense of humor-she loved to laugh and was ready for others to join her in the laughter. She was kind and generous always available to help those who were reaching out. We miss you already Dear friend .
Jimmy, Brenda and all family you are presently in our thoughts and prayers as you go through this season of grief.

Ann shared what she had learned and lived. She had received God’s Grace and then she lived to be an instrument to pass on that grace. I will remember her beautiful smile.
