I am so sorry for the loss of a nice woman. I did not find out about her death until today, 1/17/2007, as I was not in the State. I new Ann many years ago and she was a kind, sincere, but most of all, I remember her as a very smart lady. Smile, yes, she always had one. Again, I am sorry for the family loss.

Ann traveled with my tour groups to the South Pacific in 1995 and to Europe a few times in the 1990's. What a woman of insight, compassion, wisdom and joy! Even though Ann was given no chaperone responsibilities, she subtly shared concerns with me about a girl's eating disorder...a disorder that I had not made public. Ann's insight was so impressive! Often I recall the comment my then-16-year old daughter made about Ann, "Mom, I have never seen an adult smile so much!" I would love to receive such a compliment! Just a few years ago Ann's path crossed mine again when we both attended the Connect Retreat for women surviving cancer. She epitomized strength as she downplayed the leukemia and focused on living. Her love for life is an inspiration and testimony to each of us. God bless Ann's family and friends.

I worked with Ann as her foster care licensing worker for several years. I remember her as a very energetic and positive individual with a smile on her face everytime we met. She provided a great service to the children placed in her home and was a wonderful care-taker. I feel fortunate that I had the opportunity to work with Ann and got to know her, even though it was for a brief period of time in comparison to the many other lives she touched. My sympathies to family and friends of Ann's. She will be greatly missed.

My first thoughts of Grandma Ann are of how gentle she was. Almost all my memories of her include her being surrounded by family with a smile on her face. She was such an extraordinary woman and I will miss her very much.

My deepest sympathy to Annie's family. I worked with Annie at HCYF and there was always a smile on her face which made being at work so much easier. See was our inspiration and I told her I wanted to be like her when I get older. Full of love for family, friends, all people and life. It radiated through her, as she was a gift to many. Annie will always hold a special place in my heart.
