It delighted me to see the beautiful photo you selected for the obituary. Ann is depicted in that shot as I will always remember her - radiant! What a pleasure it has been to know someone with such tremendous poise and character. Her fascination for life and her interest in everything around her was inspirational to experience. Ann truly loved her children. I thought I was a "Mama's Boy" but our Bryan could have written a book on the topic and he wore that label with great pride. And Ann's love for Bryan was returned in equal measure. Those two could spend hours chatting. I have taken great solace in visualizing Bryan and Ann together.

My condolences to your beautiful family.

With love and sympathy, Gary Lindsey
