Anna was a wonderful neighbor. I loved to see her take her bike and go riding down the road. She and her best friend Mrs Smith were good friends of mine. May Our Father comfort her family.

Dear Ann became a great companion to my dad, Conrad. They so enjoyed watching the Denver Nuggets games together. I really enjoyed her sharing her childhood memories as well as her stories after coming to the US. She was a sweet lady and I will miss her. My condolences to her family.
