My condolences to Ann’s family. I was assigned to Ann’s team when I joined World Book in 1986. I was in awe of how accomplished a sales woman she was. She believed in providing World Book and the resulting education it provided to countless homes of children. She was a true mentor.

Mr. and Mrs. Richard were very special to me. Besides being my friend Susan's parents, they were my mentors at their store. I worked there as a very young girl. They taught me responsibility, honesty and dependability. Mrs. Richard was such a pretty woman.
I will never forget them.
