Dear Barbara, Ken, Ken and Alfred Again I wish to send my condolences on the loss of Ann. I have a lot of fond memories growing up with Ann and baby Barbie. Our families were very close back in the day. Ann left her mark on all who knew her. We find peace today with her passing, knowing she is at peace and home with the Lord. God Bless and Love, Cousin Marie

I worked with Ann for many years. She was a wonderful person and she had a wonderful smile. We shared many family stories as Ann was proud of her nephews. We both had ties to Rhode Island and good cooking. I wish she could have enjoyed her retirement. May God Bless all of you at this difficult time.

I've known and worked with Ann for almost 10 years. Not only was she a dedicated co-worker, she was a dear friend. She graced our office with a bright smile and would go out of her way to help anyone, anytime. If she didn't have an answer to a question, she would search determinedly until she found it. Never giving up. The office is not the same without her presence. She so deserved to enjoy retirement after many years devoted to her job, and it's unfair she did not have that opportunity. She was truly an amazing person and I am blessed that she touched my life. Love and miss you Ann.

Nature's Manual Poem by Jasen Sousa (For My Aunt)

Nature's Manual

An empty pair of slippers rests

next to the leg of an empty chair. A newly

started book, spine arched at a curious

angle by the window. Steam from near-by simmering coffee

dissipates as shadows nap underneath bridges waiting

to dance with sunrise.

Blinking traffic lights sway in shallow puddles

without anyone else on the road to interfere. A long

winter, almost over, camping mounds of stubborn snow

still not fully melted. Slopping branches of leafless

sycamore trees tap your shoulders,

eager for a reunion.

Cafes in the local square have shut down

for the evening, unaware of what you had left to spend. You gaze

through a toy store window, drawn to trains

that never stop traveling, drawn

to a smirking clown who makes you forget

you ever aged at all.

It is getting late and you hear your parents

calling you home. They have neatly tucked in

your chair, put away your slippers, and left a dim light

on in your room, just bright enough for you to see

what is necessary when you arrive.

And when you awake in spring

you will be welcomed by wondering skies

painted auburn by hands no longer restricted

by the wires and cords that life confuses us with.
