In Tribute to Ann Richards September 13, 2006 Respected and beloved Trustee of Save the Children, the independent organization creating lasting change for children in need in the United States and around the world. Ann opened doors, opened hearts and opened hope for children living in some of the poorest, most unstable parts of the world. She also worked tirelessly for children in our programs in the United States. She did not hesitate to use her influence, values and global network to call upon governments, institutions and supporters to help improve the children's lives. They and we have lost a unique voice of humanity, humor and hope. Our deepest condolences to Ann's children, Cecile, Daniel, Clark and Ellen Richards, and her eight grandchildren. Board of Trustees of Save the Children Federation, Inc.
