Not sure what to say?

My deepest sympathy for the entire family. *Gram* as she was known by some was always a spitfire--I have fond memories for sure!!

My Grandmother, who I loved dearly... I will miss you so much RIP Grandma
Give Grandpa a hug for me xoxo

My deepest sympathy. We all looked forward to seeing Ann at the Senior Center. She was one of the most pleasant and lovely women ever to walk through our doors. Such a beautiful and talented lady. She will be missed by all.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends during this difficult time. I hope that the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 can bring comfort. Knowing that there's a hope for the ones we have lost in death can be so reassuring.

In deepest sympathy. I always looked forward to seeing Annie at our annual Robert Burns Night. She will be missed.


Love you always.

It was my good fortune to know you. You brought a smile to so many people. You will be missed. Blessed be,

Ann I'm glad we crossed paths. You were a joy to be around many laughs. Come to find out we both love elephants. You will be missed by many. RIP Ann
