Ann brought so much laughter and wonderful memories into our life and she will always be remembered with love and smiles. What a wonderful legacy she leaves behind! As you suggested, in lieu of flowers we have made a
contribution to the Alzheimer's Association in hope and prayer that they will be able to find a cure and/or prevention of this devastating disease that took her away from us 'way too soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
