Many people come and go in one's life. Ann was soneone who came into my life through her beautiful daughter Barbara, and though she may have not been in it every day she made an impact in it by truly showing what love is and what it means. I truly will miss everything about her. My heartfelt sympathy for her whole family...she truly was an amazing, loving, kind and compassionate woman. Who always led by example.
May The Lord Grant her everlasting peace and may she be reunited with her loved ones in The Kingdom of Our Father, God! Amen
