Woodie, Kim and Nikki,
Thinking of you and praying for comfort from our God that he will wrap his arms around you and give you peace. Ann and I spent many years together after high school; Kim and our daughter , Missie, were good friends, which brought Ann and me together. I had a long conversation with Ann when calling about our reunion a few years ago. She told me how she and Woodie were so involved with the grandchildren. We will miss her so much. Ann was a great nurse, mother, wife and grandmother. She was such a wonderful person. May God bless her family during this time.
