  • So sorry to hear of Ann’s passing. But at the same time, I’m happy for her because she gets to be with Jesus! Ann was such a sweet lady. She always made a point of seeking me out sometime during Sunday morning service (when I would make it make to North Woodbury) just to say “Hi” and ask how I was doing. She will not soon be forgotten.

  • My sincere sympathy at the loss of you’re mother. I knew her first many years ago when she tried to work in Medical Records at Mansfield General Hospital. Her mind though was on her growing 2 children and her husband.years ago when moved to Lexington reconnected with Ann.Mainly by talking on the phone as two who lived alone in support. She was so determined to stay in her home with minimal help. I am saddened to know she had to go to the care facility. I regret not being able to attend her funeral.

  • My sincere sympathy at the loss of you’re mother. I knew her first many years ago when she tried to work in Medical Records at Mansfield General Hospital. Her mind though was on her growing children and love of her life, Billy. I reconnected when I moved back to Lexington the most. We talked for awhile by phone . I regret I had to stop checking on her a year ago. I am saddened to lose her as a friend. I regret not being able to attend her funeral. I know though she is now where no earthly pain will be part of her life.
