Hi Ms. Ann,
I know  that I when I get back to Ft. Lauderdale and come to visit you at the cementery you'll have your ears full.  You were always full of advise and a good listener.  You probably turn the sprinklers on and I will get soak. The truck got wreck and Ms. Taz was put to sleep, so she is in Doggie always said there was a doggie heaven.  I miss you dearly. I came to Pensacola to cook for Adriana and the kids, I am trying to make the best of it, but I feel empty inside, there has been just too much pain within such a short time, is hard to overcome. I be there to wear your ears off on Sunday....Love you Ms. Ann.

Missing you

I am really missing you a lot. We celebrated Gail's 60th birthday and all your girls and boys were there, it was a nice time for every one.  Gail really enjoyed it.  Halloween was a wash out, it rained, but we still got some kids at your house as always...

I received Adriana's UWF graduation invitations, she graduates on Dec. 11. And my friend send me some of my other Anne's (Adriana's Godmother)  ashes along with two beautiful rings. But you already know that because you are watching me along with her and my mom and dad all the way from Heaven. 

The Bench

Shared by Carmen Martinez on October 31, 2010

Things like this only happens to me. I was rejoicing... placement of the bench finally. I was dancing, borrowing flowers from the neighbor, taking pictures, then I went to take pictures from the other side...surprise, surprise...the bench was placed by law by the tree, (they failed to tell me that the bench was to be placed by law in front of somebody else's grave by the tree)....I cried, cried and cried some more..then the sprinkles came on...I was drenched....Ms. Ann and God most of been laughing at me, after all I alway say they have an awesome sense of humor.

I have thought of many stories about Mom, maybe I'll share them later, For now Mom was a Mother to all our friends, smiled when each one came through the door, bailed a few out of  jail, and lectured all of us who needed to be set on the right path. She always said she wanted a big rooming house so everyone could move in. Everybody loved Mom, because they felt the Love from her. Thanks Ma for being there for all of us.

Only Ann Dooley would kick out her own for someone else.  Thats exactly what she did for me! (and her grandson - which is probably the real reason - hehehe).  She gave me the chance to get myslef on steady feet to provide for my own.  Many hours were spent around the kitchen table talking and sharing.  She knew alot more than most of you think!!!!!!

A true beauty inside and out.

What a looker she was. Beautiful mother.

AS MOM WAS GETTING MORE FORGETFUL I WOULD WEAR ONE  T SHIRT THAT SHE LIKED. IT WAS ONE OF THE SEVEN DWARFS. SHE WOULD SAY DOPEY, DOPEY, DOPEY AND SMILE.                                                                                                                                                   SHE COULD GIVE A DIRTY LOOK IF YOU SAID A CURSE WORD, AND TELL CHUTNEY SHH IF SHE WOULD'NT STOP BARKING.  CHUTNEY WOULD GO TO HER AND GIVE HER A FEW LICKS ON HER HAND.

My heart goes out to the Dooley family and my thoughts and prayers are with you. There are no words to express the loss of a loved one. No doubt your Mom is in heaven with your Dad and Brother and will be looking after you all until you are reunited again for eternity. God Bless you all. With deepest sympathy,

Nan Mercede

I remember just before Michele moved to Arizona, she told Ann and I that we could take some of the plants as long as we were inconspicuous. Time to confess, sorry Michele,  Ann came dressed in her gardening attire and a large straw hat, large black garbage bags and shovels in hand. Ann and I were like little girls in a field of chocolate covered cherries (Ann's favorite), we laughed, giggled, dugged and talked about every  plant and shrub and their beauty. I will never forget that day, as I still have all the beautiful plants and shrubs. Ann loved you and Edie very much, not to mentioned your landscaping and the time she spend there.
