Darlene and family, You have our deepest sympathy at the loss of one so dear. Ann lost her Mom a little over a year ago. Memories can bring such comfort during these difficult times. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers for hope and love to heal your hearts. May God grant you strength. (Ann recalls you and your family with great fondness from a real estate transaction many years ago in C'ville)
