Ann was a distant cousin of mine through her grandmother Kate and my great-great grandmother who were sisters. She was a fine Christian lady who never ate of the bread of idleness. She leaves a wonderful legacy for her family who will be in our thoughts and prayers. "Well done, good and faithful servant."
