I have known Ann for a long time but recently she became a patron of mine. I will
remember Ann as a gentle person. We became very close in the last year. She was so concerned for me and our son who has Autism.
I will miss her soooo much and it was a pleasure to see her every Friday to get her hair done. My thoughts and prayers are
with you all.
In Christ love, Suzy Brenner
