“It is with great sorrow that I extend my sincerest sympathy. Ann attended my aquatic classes for many years and what a delight she was to have in the class. She had become more than just a participant through the years, she was truly a good friend to myself and her many fellow participants. She always had that great smile for everyone that crossed her path. I think I speak for all her aquatic friends when I say she will be greatly missed by all of us that knew and loved her. May your many fond memories of her bring you peace and comfort. ”
“Dear Carrie & Cindy and families, I was so very sorry to hear of the death of Ann. She was such a dear friend of my mother, and also her "traveling buddy" to Florida. She always looked forward to her trips to see Linda & Joe with Ann. She always said such pleasant things about Ann and how she was always so nice to travel with. I'm sure my mom & your mom are meeting up in Heaven now.”
“Cindy and Bob sorry for Your loss. Prayers for Your Family at this difficult time. Your fellow Mooney 82 alumni”
