    This breaks my heart. Ann was such a beautiful person inside and out. I treasure memories of her from church. Her smile was always a warm welcome. She will be greatly missed. Prayers for her husband and all her family that God will give them peace and comfort during this time. Go rest high on that mountain Ann.
