Not sure what to say?

Dear Don:
While I knew Ann had relapsed recently, it was nonetheless a shock to learn of her passing. In the many years of working with you, it was apparent how close you were -- in work, love and leisure. While I knew Ann just through your business, it was easy to see what a wondeful person she was and how much you cared for each other. My mother always remarked about what a sweet person Ann was to her when she visited your office.

While her time here has passed, she...

I have been thinking of Ann since hearing this very sad news. What a presence she was with that smile and good cheer. I remember seeing the two of you in the halls of ND, thinking "Oh, yeah...they are the true thing. That's what love looks like." You are in my thoughts as is the memory of sitting on her beautiful porch our senior year, chatting with her while thinking "What a great person!" The world will be a little less kind without her. So, so sorry....

Dear Don and Family,

Ann, was a remarkable person that brought joy to light no matter the situation. She fought a courageous battle and always smiled throughout.

It was Ann's cheer that I will fondly remember.

Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you and keep you strong.

Don, Andrew and Colleen my love and prayers go out to all of you during this time of great sadness. I will always remember Ann and the guidance she gave me when I met her, her joy as she brought her new little ones to church for the first time, the years spent watching Andrew and Colleen grow and learn, and the time spent with all of you. You are all a large part of my life and I know that Ann is now watching over everyone with pride and joy. May she now continue her journey in God's strong...

Dear Don and Family,
So sorry for your loss and I pray our Heavenly Father blesses and watches over you during this difficult time.

To Ann's husband and children:
My husband and I want to express our condolences to all of you. You have never met us, but my husband, Ed,and I have been members of APO for many years. When Ed was president of the organization, he had spoken to Ann on the phone many times about the Thanksgiving baskets. We were able to tell by her care and concern of putting these baskets together each year no matter how sick she was feeling. What a difficult journey she has had the last couple of...

Ann was always a great, positive energy. I always enjoyed seeing her, she always exhibited such great warmth. She is a big loss to our community. Condolences from my entire family.

Dear Don and Family,
I am very sorry to hear of Ann's passing. I enjoyed the contact I had with her at ETS. She was always so friendly to all. When someone suggested that I might want to ask Don to help us with financial planning, and I discovered that he was Ann's husband, I did not hesitate.
Please accept,our sincere condolences.

Ann's Family,
Your CINJ support group will miss you so much. Even during your pain you always made us laugh. You would always worry about us more than yourself. Rest in Peace sweet Ann!
