I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. She was such an amazing woman. I know this is a sad time but so grateful to have had the time with her. Wishing your family all the comfort that can come from a life that has brought so much happiness to this world.
Jennifer and I are so sorry for your loss. We pray for God’s peace and blessings for each of you as you celebrate the life of your Mom and Grandma.
Ann was a blessing to all that she met. She was the soul of hospitality and the light of any gathering she attended. Her many good deeds make her the perfect example of Christian charity. She will be missed by one and all that knew her. Her life made a difference in the world and the world a better place to live. May the God she loved so much bring her home to live in eternal peace. I love you dear Ann.
My heart goes out to her family and to her Bible study ladies who were like sisters to her.
Ann was a blessing to so many people if they needed help.
One of the special things she did was every Tuesday she woukd pick up women who did not drive and all went to mass at the Diocesan center then they would go to lunch.
She visited them also always and bringing the Most Holy Eucharist to them.’
She was a good friend . She will be missed by many who she touched with kindness and love.

You all are are in my heart and in my prayers as you celebrate a life well lived !
