Condolences from family and friends

Ronnie, Wesley and families. My heart is broken hearing that "Grandma Ann" has passed. She was an amazing amazing friend. When Tom and I got married in 1980 and I moved down I was given the pleasure of having Miss Ann as my boss and most of all my friend. She took Tom and I under her wing and helped me through a lot of being away from home. We then had two sons, Tommy and Jason that your mom had them call her Grandma Ann. To this day when they talk about her they use this name. When we moved back to Pa. and came down to visit, we stayed at your mom and dad's house. Your dad and the boys talked sports all the time which as you know made him soooo happy. It has been a very long time since I saw your mom but we talked a few times a year and sent cards for occasions. When Ronnie sent me the letter last year I knew that I could not call her. Since it had been a while since I had spoken to her I did not want to confuse her along with the fact that I knew in my heart I would just cry the whole time. Grandma Ann, Miss Ann we will never forget you. We love you so very much. Rest In Peace and have fun being back with Bill.
