I grew up with Ann and Mary Beth as my backyard neighbors. Then Janet came along. We had grand times playing games, riding bikes, playing baseball and even wrestling with all the other kids on North Connecticut. The Grimms and Stringers were always great friends and Ann and her family were always there to give support in times of need. Oh, what a great time we had as kids, picnics for the neighborhood in our back yards. It was a gentler, safer time and we pretty much had the run of the neighborhood. Everybody watched after all of us and kept us safe. I have so many precious memories of Ann during my first 12 years when we were neighbors. Many more memories of our families together at church and play. She and my sister Barb were great friends. Her Dad and Mom were so admired by me and have had a great influence on the good things in my life. Love you Ann, you will be missed but we will meet again in the loving arms of Jesus.
