So sorry to hear of Anns passing. I worked with Ann at the Hotel Dieu on 2C. We spent a lot of time talking about our children. She always had great advice and I must say it was all loving advice. Dont worry about schedules or bad habits with my young children; just enjoy them. Ann was always right She so loved her boys. God Bless you Ann
