I just found out about Ann. Worked with her for years at Cannon. She was a wonderful person. I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers. I know you are blessed with many wonderful memories.

Don and Family,
Our sincere sympathy in the loss of our dear friend, Ann. Our Cannon family did not know of her
death until the next day after her funeral service. We are sorry we were not there during this difficult time.
Ann was such a faithful Cannon employee. She came to our Retirees Get-Together at Pizza Inn in January.
When I spoke with her last in March to remind her of our Get-together on March 25, she told me then she was on oxygen and had been in the hospital. We loved Ann as she was a part of our Cannon family and we treasured her friendship.

Ann was one of the finest women you could ever meet. I worked with her at Cannon Memorial Hospital for many years. It is a joy to have known her!

Don, and all of the Gravely and Stone families, I worked with Ann at Cannon Hospital many years ago and have known several of your family members since childhood. The oldest of which was Chief Stone. Another member of the fabric that was Pickens for so many years has gone home. Ann was beautiful in many ways and that is reflected in the picture that the family has posted. Now we stand in anticipation of a reunion that God has promised us as believers. May His promises comfort you during these difficult days. With Kind Regards and sympathy, Don Craig
