The loss of such special anchors in this life leaves us with such heaviness in our hearts. Ann's light shone bright, and her love was ever present and flowing. I am blessed to have been in receipt of these in my early adult life. My heart and compassion go out to Ann's family, who were blessed with her presence, love and light for the whole of their lives. Ann will be missed! She is among the angels; but really always was.

We were all blessed for having Ann in our lives for so many years growing up. She was our 2nd Mom to many of us. Always taking the station wagon some where loaded with kids. We all loved her dearly and the memories will never be forgotten. Glad we were a part of her life. Thoughts and Prayers to you all. Rest In Peace Dear Friend (Mom)...

I know not all of you know me, but I worked with Ann at the Pinehurst Medical Clinic...The times there were a Hoot and a half and I tell ya she could be so stinkin silly and hang with the young'uns. Then sometimes she was in her "mood" and she was just downright pissy!! But that's what made the lasting impression in my mind of her. I just loved the time I did get to work with her. I got her address from Denise a few years ago and planned on sending the letter I wrote and well.......I just never did. So knowing now that its "too late" makes me feel, well I don't know. Sad I suppose. But I just wanted to say how special she was to me when she was working. I hope her family knows just how amazing she certainly was. Thanks Ann for the memories......You will never be forgotten
