  1. Many memories, Bill and Ann were close friends, and we lived in the same neighborhood a good while. I am guessing we had lunch with Ann in Austin a few years back and occasionally kept in touch. The daughters used to keep my son company when we went out in Houston. All of us will miss you, Ann.

  2. Ann and I met in 2007, right after a lost my husband to cancer, and we instantly became close friends, she was more like a sister to me. Since we had both lost our husbands we decided to start traveling and what fun we had. We laughed and laughed about some of the crazy stories we had. I am so fortunate to have shared so many great times with her. My life won’t be the same now that she’s passed. I will miss my wonderful friend, but I know I will see her again in a better place.
