Compassion and determination, balanced with a dose of “grit.” I was only aware of some of Ana's contributions to this community, but I know the Community Foundation was a grateful recipient of her talents. To my surprise, I discovered that Ana's entrepreneurial talents ran deep. Our discussion ranged on from how to build the Foundation to how to better market my own business. I will miss her smile, straight talk and her confidence. Ana left an impression and a challenge to all of us to take risks, make change happen and to make a difference. Ana… we won't let you down.
