Ann was my 2nd mom and my idol. She was my biggest cheerleader and my advocate to my parents. Ann and Bruce’s love for one another is unsurpassed. She will be so missed.

I’ve known Ann since our early days in grade school and attending church together as children. I remember when Ann and Bruce became boyfriend and girlfriend. It was the 8th grade, we were 14. Ann and I had many adventures, some mischievous! She was the sweetest girl I’ve ever known. She and Bruce were the perfect match. Thank you for loving and taking such good care of Ann, Bruce. You were her angel. I will miss her terribly.
