I first met Ann working for C&P Telephone, on the third floor, at the Church Street office. That was in 1970 and she was always willing to help and had great concern for all those working around her.
When I returned to Church Street three years later, Ann was invaluable in getting the job done. I would not have survived those ten years without her.
Sorry I am out of town and will not be there on Wednesday,
