We are so sorry to hear the news of Ann's passing. Ann touched our lives and hearts in uncountable ways during our nearly 30 years as friends and next door neighbors. She had one of the biggest and kindest hearts possible. We have so missed her since she moved "home" to Alabama, but are so grateful for the happiness she experienced living amongst her family again. Wishing you all peace and solace in knowing the joy and blessings that you brought to Ann.
