Tracy so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I so enjoyed the few times my mother, Connie, and I got to come visit and spend with her, you & family. May God give you all strength in the days to come.

I was sorry to hear of Ann’s passing, she was a wonderful friend and a great lady. We had lots of memories together with our group, Naughty Nine. Ann and I tried so hard to get the FaceTime down so she could take part when we met for lunches. Ann and I shared the same birthday, but she was a year older than me. I know she will be greatly missed by everyone. She so loved her family. Praying for peace and comfort for all of you. Blessings and Hugs🙏🙏💐❤️
