My Aunt Ann was a very special lady. And I loved her so very much. It is so true about the cards, my Mother never had an occasion pass that she did not receive a card from Aunt Ann. Her daughter Ann has really kept up the tradition for her Mom.
Rest in Peace my Sweet Aunt. YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.


Married June 24 1925
