So many fun times when traveling with Ann, Charlie & their “furry” babies. Will always appreciate their giving us a safe place to stay when escaping hurricanes that were headed towards Pensacola. Many happy miles & times spent with Ann.

Ann was a dear friend & wonderful neighbor. She & I joined the DAR (Daughters of the Revolution) on the same date .
Other activities included : square dancing classes with our husbands, a short trip to Helen, GA to do research for DAR, and many other times of sharing.
I miss her fun personality.
