    1 Year Ago Today

    Ann was an incredible person and the world is a little sadder without her here. During a dark time for me she was a light and like all of you I miss her. I hope that she found the place she believed in and is enjoying a glass of wine looking down on us now. Take care Ann, I miss you, Jeff
