Tom, Sharon, Jeannie, Vickie and family My Aunt Ann was one of the sweetest people I have ever known and not because she was my aunt. She always had a smile and a kind word to offer you. All her 15 brothers and sisters all seemed to have these traits. What a wonderful family to have been born into. We will miss you Aunt Ann. Rest In Peace. Regina and Don
