    Ann was my dear friend, and a dear friend to my wife and children. Ann was my friend of over 25 years. She was one of the most dedicated and loyal friends I have ever had. We originally came to know each other through her work with me at Kmart. Ann eventually became my office coordinator, and her commitment and support was invaluable. My heart and deepest sympathies along with those of my family, goes out to Ann’s husband Bobby, who’s also our dear friend, and to their children, grandchildren, family and other close friends.

    Ann, I am still trying to process that you are gone from us. I will miss you and I look forward to seeing you again in heaven. Godspeed my dear lady.
