I lost my best friend...We had years of happiness, sadness, tears and many laughs! My heart is with her now in Heaven. Anne was a wonderful person...if you needed her, she was there. Anne had the kindest heart. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to speak with her a few weeks before she passed. We talked for quite sometime...and her last words to me were "I'll see you again ...someday". "I love you", My deepest sympathy to Bill, Brian, Tesh and Jocelyn. Love you all!

I offer my sincere sympathy to Ann's family. While I hadn't seen her since a craft fair years ago, I did know her well through high school. She was a friendly, warm, fun spirited girl and very talented. May she rest eternally in the loving peace of the Lord. Judy Petz

Anne and I were childhood friends
We spent many days dancing in her driveway at Sunnyside drive with all our friends
I saw her a few times as an adult and was so sorry to hear of her passing
When I think of growing up Anne is there
and we are dancing in her driveway
