Ann was the sweetest person I had ever met. I look forward to spending more time with her in the new system. Til then , I will miss her bunches.
Ann was true friend very rare to find. She was like a sister to me. I will miss her greatly until I see her again in paradise. She loved animals and looked forward to see all of them in paradise..
Ann was my niece and I was not able to be with her often since I lived in New Hampshire. I enjoyed her so much and she made the best Scones out there. She could light up a room and made everyone so happy, she will be deeply missed and I love her very much.
We love Ann so much. She will be greatly missed by all.
I’ve know Ann since she and David married in 1974. Every time I saw her she had something encouraging to say, many times in the form of a joke. The last time I spoke to her was when she went into the hospital and we visited over the phone. Before we finished talking she had a joke to tell me. I’ll miss her humor and laugh. I’m looking forward to seeing her in the New System where death will be no more. Until then, rest peacefully, Ann.
She was always so nice to me. Loved my daughter. Gave her a porcelain doll once cause she said my daughter looked like a doll. I will miss Ann but see her soon in paradise.
Ann was probably the most cheerful person I have ever been privileged to know. Her sweet and contagious giggle was hard to resist. And I can’t remember her ever saying a negative word about anyone. Love by many, will be missed by many more. So wonderful to know she will live again, John 5:28, 29.
