  • My heart 💜 is broken. Ann was the world to me and my family; her Irish bread, the books she brought for my husband, our wonderful lunches, and private conversations are only a few of the ways that she shared her caring, compassion and love. Ann brought the sunshine everywhere she went, and we will miss her far beyond what words can express. God Bless you, Ann ..Peace be with you. I love you my friend.
