Ann was a amazing friend and was my sister in everyway except blood. I knew her since I was 6 and she was 7. I remember the day I met her, my brother Chuck was friends with her sister Amber and would always go to thier house. One day I begged and begged my Mom to make Chuck take me too, and she did. From that day on, Ann and I were inseparable. We always were together and stayed at each other's house(mainly hers). Her Mom Sandy was a second Mom to me, and was always there for me when I needed her. When my dad passed when I was 10, I moved away and eventually Ann and I lost touch. But years later we reunited and it was like we didn't miss a day apart. We didn't get to hang out since we lived far apart but always kept in touch. We was recently talking about how we needed to get together and catch up on our lives. I really wish I got the chance to make it to see her. She was helping me through some stuff with my kids and even threatened to come "raise some he**" for me. She helped me through my Moms death just like I was helping her through hers. Ann you was my best friend for 30 years and that will never change. I love you so much and I'll miss you everyday I promise! Fly high sis until we meet again!
