I recently learned of Ann's passing and wish to extend my sincere condolences to her family. I have many wonderful childhood memories of Ann. I'll never forget her smile, distinctive laugh and love of animals, (especially dogs & horses). When my own children were young and I was visiting out East, Ann happened to stop by my parent's place and visit. She'll really be missed. May God continue to bless her and give you peace.

Donna, Hope and family, So sorry to hear of Ann' s passing. My first memory of her was seeing her on Brownie at the County Fair with my grandfather. Brownie's tail was so long it touched the ground and Ann looked so wonderful on him. I was entranced, it was the beginning of my love for horses. Our paths crossed again many times throughout those early years, she taught me how to braid manes and tails, how to laugh at myself and not to take things too seriously. We enjoyed fox hunting, art class, EHS equestrian club and so much more. My memories are those of a bright, beautiful, confident, strong willed young woman. Our paths diverged after school, but I treasure my memories of Ann.Please know all of her loved ones are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hope, Donna, Rich, Tammy and Gabe....God Bless you through these troubled days. Words cannot convey the sadness I feel on Annie's passing. I had not seen her very much in the recent years but her laughter and unique way of expressing herself was a great part of my childhood. I can picture her so clearly riding Brownie, that it it still makes me smile. Happy days. Annie was instrumental in my becoming a friend of Bill W, and for that I will always hold her close in my heart. I pray for peace for the family and hope you realize how many lives she truly touched. RIP beautiful Annie.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Donna and Hope, I remember so fondly time spent at your house on Friday nights. Ann and I would go with your mom when she got her hair done on Saturday morning. It was the best. She gave us both a dollar and we would buy a record and candy. It was the life. Also remember Ann had the best lunches ever. I always thought it was so special how your mom packed her lunch. I couldn't trade mine for anything but Ann always got to trade hers. We were so young. Remember pony Brownie across the street. Love and memories of days gone by but still cherished so many years later. With sympathy to you both and all the people who so loved Ann. DeVon Williams Daniels

Rich and family and we will always have our Annie in our Hearts and memories and I will remember all of the little jams we got each other in and out of as we were growing up and somehow and some place in time we will learn to be at peace with the reality that Ann is in another place but for now we have each other, God Bless Us All. Donna & Buzz

Hope and Donna, My heart is broken knowing that you have suffered the loss of your sister Ann. I have wonderful memories of time spent with your family. I truly appreciate the time and love Ann put into trying to help Jimmy, and her kindness to me when I was so desperately in need of kindness. She was a wonderful person. I spoke with Jimmy today and he is bedside himself with grief but he is still very ill so you may not hear from him. Please know he is thinking about you both.

How we love Annie and Rich. They saved us "northerners" when we moved to Delaware. Annie always giggled her little laugh when I asked her to interpret when a local was talking to me at Cell One. She belly laughed when I told her I would muck the stalls during an Ocean City weekend they went on. But she let me do it and Clancy was patient too. They loved us as if we were blood relatives. I will miss her more then words can say but I know where she is. However.... not sure what mischief she may be up to now that she is whole again....And THAT thought makes me smile.
