Ann was such a dear friend. I was privileged to be with her and Kim on our trip to Ireland in 2021. Also she and I visited Panama City Beach FL last August and had a wonderful time. She so lovingly cared for Billy for many years before his death. She had many major physical problem but always came through with a smiling face. Rest in Peace my beautiful friend. I will sorely miss you.
