Ann and my mom were best friends growing up, and their friendship endured over the years despite the many different directions in which their respective lives took them. I have very fond memories of visiting Ann, Becky and Stephen when I was a child, playing in their big house and riding horses once or twice. Ann was always happy and vibrant and fun, and she always made us feel right at home no matter how long it was between visits. She and my mom shared such a special bond for so long; and, while I hadn't seen Ann in many, many years, I know that she is truly missed. God bless her and her loved ones, and my sincere condolences to all of them.
