I remember as a young child spending weekends at Aunt Ann's house and playing with Ed . Wonderful memories.

I graduated from Central High School with Ann in l955. I really got to know her better as a result of our monthly luncheons at Jimmies Restaurant in Mint Hill where we had such a good time. I found out a couple of years ago that Ann and I had sons in November l9966 at Presbyterian Hospital - my son's name is Roy Edward and Ann's son's name is Edward Roy. We thought that was really funny. Ann was such a pleasant person and seemed to appreciate the relationship she had with her school mates. She will certainly be missed. Tizzie Polk Crisp

I love Ms. Ann. She had sarcasm like no other and could throw an awesome stink-eye. A wonderfully, genuine person and so kind. She was brilliant. Thank you for showing me Jesus and for showing me what it looks like to serve God for ALL of your days.

I was in the CHS Class of '55 with your mother. She was a delight then and later in life. I was a lawyer and judge in Charlotte and ran into her from time to time. We always caught up and laughed about the old days, She came to the CHS luncheons and had a smile and kind word for everybody. She was a fine lady and I will miss her. The good die way too early. She was one of the good ones. My sympathy to her family.

Aunt Ann was an inspiration to me. Her strength, courage, compassion and grit inspired me as a young man and recently when I visited her in the home a few years ago. I spent time with Ann two years ago after visiting my dad’s grave - for the first time years after he passed. I was emotional and Ann made me smile, immediately I was comfortable and reminiscing. I love her to this day very much and look forward to hugging her - and my dad in heaven soon. I love you, Aunt Ann.
