Dear Ann,

Thank you for your love and kindness over a lifetime. So glad we were able to get together in October for one last reunion. And then you wrote a very special note to me in early December which I will save for the rest of my days. Now you are with Warren, your parents & family. Say “hi” to my very own dear Anne. She will join in your welcome to your new home the Lord has prepared for you.

With much love,

Don, Cindy and Ann:

Our support and sympathy goes to the three of you and your extended family at the loss of your mother. She was such a wonderful lady to me, my sisters and our parents through the decades. Our family linkages started in the early 1950s through our backyards and it only grew with time. And what a fun family bond it was, even through it was a friendship between “Wolverines” and “Spartans” ! Those stories still bring smiles to my face.

In her latter years your mother, Ann, was welcoming to us whenever we returned to town. And she always managed to come up with one new humorous story about our families as we all grew up in a lasting friendship.

Memories of your parents and the three of you will always be a part of my memories of our childhood – time at the Lake Michigan beach, the Hiawatha Club or backyard picnics – bonds linking us forever.

She was a grand and gracious lady. A BIG HUG to all of you.

To Ann’s Family-

A presence of grace and love and fun has left our life time with the passing of Ann. She and Warren were such good friends to our parents, Dick and Kay. The memories will be dear always, especially our last visit at the end of the summer. She gave us a few photos and a few momentos from their Europe trip which we will cherish. I will smile as I remember her and be with you in spirit on Monday at her memorial.
love, the other Annie

Don, Cindy, Ann and Judy:
Mom’s live in our hearts forever; they pull on our heartstrings even when they have passed away. So, know that your mom will always be with you, pulling those heartstrings, sending light from her star to brighten your day. She was a special person to our family, along with your dad. How fortunate we all are to have joyous memories of growing up with each other; we shared laughs and fun times with one another. I also feel that the friendship between all of our parents was very unique and special to each one of them. They enriched each others lives, always telling ribald stories of their adventures together and sharing a bond through the decades. Bridge club nights kept their minds active, as well as adding more stories to their treasure chest! I am so thankful to have spent an afternoon with your mom last August, as she was full of spirit and twinkling eyes during our conversation. My thoughts are with you. I am sorry for the loss of your mother and a grand lady who shared her life with so many people. Hugs to all of you, Mary

Judy, Don, Cindy, and Ann:

My emotions and thoughts are with you today during the services for your Mom. I hope you shared plenty of good stories yesterday with family and friends.

Judy, sorry I missed listing your name in my first message. My mistake.
