I'm so saddened to learn of Ann's passing. When she was here in Norfolk, me and my family enjoyed having her over for Sunday dinners after church. She was such a funny character. I remember a time when she was shopping at Home Depot and there was a woman who was looking for a stud finder. Ann said that she was a stud finder. She started pointing out all of the men in the area and said, "There's a stud, there's a stud, and there's a stud." The poor unsuspecting woman could not help but laugh. This is the sort of woman Ann was. She loved everyone and her laughter was contagious. She loved her family and I know she will be sorely missed.
