  1. Ann was my Partylite rep. She was a very sweet lady and my best friend and I will miss her. We will always have fond memories of her telling us that we were lucky to have each other because we looked and acted more like sisters than best friends. She was a good person and I know that you miss her terribly. The body may be gone but the smile and kind heart will never be forgotten. God bless you and your family during these sad days. Christy Cogdill and Kim Walls express their deepest sympathies. God bless you.

  2. Ann – I didn’t stay in touch with you and didn’t know that you were in another battle with cancer. You fought so hard with the ovarian cancer and I admired your spirit. May those who loved you the most know that you are with the One who loved you the greatest.

  8. Dear Morris,
    We were so saddened to hear about Ann.
    She truly fought the good fight and was such a
    precious Blessing to those of us who knew her.

    Although it has been many years since we ‘hung out’
    together, we can joyfully recall our shared times of
    friendship.

    One thing remembered about Ann, is how much
    she loved her family. Our deepest sympathy and
    prayers are with you, Beverly and Michael and
    all of her family.

    With Love, Ron and Toni Autrey
