My sister, Mae, never met a stranger, she could talk to anyone even as a little girl. She really had the gift of gab. She had a good sense of humor and we had a lot of fun growing up together. We will be happy to see each other in the new system.

I remember Aunt Mae as being very beautiful and friendly. She came from a great family, the Fishers. She was a good mother and a faithful person. She and my Mom were very close when they were growing up, she will be missed.

I remember Ann as a kind and funny lady who love life and the beauty within it, and it showed in her paintings. She always welcomed people in her home and had a warm heart for strangers. She will be remembered in Jehovah's book of life and we look forward when she will awake for her sleep and begin her new life in the Paradise to come with a young vibrant spirit. It was such a great pleasure meeting Ann and her daughters. She will be greatly missed.
