  4. I am so sorry to hear of Ann’s passing. I got to know her through my cousin and i immediately adored her. The world would be a better place if there were more loving and kind people like Ann. Her last text to me was on the 20th of November and read “I’m ready to sing praises at His feet with my brothers and sisters in Christ.” She will be greatly missed, but she is no longer in pain and most definitely getting to sing that song to Jesus now in heaven. Prayers for her family and friends during this difficult time.
