  1. Ann was a wonderful person. She will be missed by all who knew her. We were classmates and good friends at Stone Mountain High School, and maintained that friendship through the interaction of our families in Stone Mountain. She was always a very sweet and beautiful person. My love and respect for Ann will live on.

  2. Ann exemplified the character of Christ in all that she did. She is a shining example of what God meant Christians to be. It was our privilege to have know Ann and to experience her kindness.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was always kind, generous and thoughtful. Do you remember as kids when we all ran around the neighborhood with Kim and Perry? Life was simple back then. And then as we grew older, your mom worked briefly at the Old Post Office Buffet and we would see her at the bank. I miss those times. I pray God will be with all of you and strengthen you in your time of need.
