I've had the joyous blessing to know Ann all my life and will always remember her beautiful eyes that would sparkle with her smiles and laughter. She was a shining example of someone who truly knew Jesus and reflected His love to everyone she knew. She taught me much through every stage of my life and she will live on in our hearts as she goes to her proper place in Heaven. My sympathies to all of Ann's family as you wait until you can be reunited with her. She was one of a kind and always had time to love, laugh and help in any way she could. We have all been blessed to know this beautiful woman and will miss her so much.

My beautiful, loving, gentle, giving mom. I am so grateful for the living example of faith in God you showed us. Life was not always easy, there were many heartaches but your faith NEVER faltered and I can only hope to be half the person you were. I know when you entered through heaven's gated God said Well done my good and faithful servant! I miss you terribly! My heart hurts so much
