Not sure what to say?

Ann and I worked together for Nurses In Touch Community Hospice for a number of years. I visited her at her home several times during those years and delighted in her stories about some of her "heirlooms". Ann was a beautiful person inside and out. She was deeply religious and was full of God's joy as all people are who are close to God. She is now in the arms of the God Whom she loved with her whole being. I was blessed to have known her for all those years and am sorry that...

My condolences to the family n may she RIP,Ms.Wright was my late husband hospice nurse back in 2006 n he too passed away on 7/4/2006
