It has been many years since I have seen Ann, but she and her sister were raised in my neighborhood in Camden, AR I attended church with her family at St. John's Episcopal Church. Ann was a lovely girl and was a good friend of my sister, Ginny. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.

I met Ann and her sweet daughter while on a tour in the UK a few years ago. We became friends who shared a love for England and Scotland, and our views on many topics were the same. We discovered we were distantly related and we started calling each other Cousin. While we didn't live near each other, we stayed friends. Ann, you'll be missed. RIP Cousin. My deepest sympathies to the family.
