Sorry for your loss. Ann was a beautiful person and wonderful friend. Will always treasure the many memories of PR's, Topsail Beach, house parties and "singing in the rain". Will miss her dearly.

Your mom, was one of a kind, just a beautiful person inside and out. I treasure the many years we worked together at Halley Electric, with in turn, the many trips to PR's, where so many fun memories were made. If you knew Ann, you loved her. I'm sure your dad, Jim, and Gary met her with open arms. I am so sorry for your loss. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Ann will be missed. Sending our love.
