When Ann married my brother Don, I was just a young boy. As the family grew and Don's early teaching career led to numerous (almost yearly) moves, looking back I recall her amazing organizational skills keeping the moves on track while still managing the household. She is now back with Don and at peace.

I miss you, Mom. We all have for a long time, already, which is what makes this so strange and difficult in its own way. I'm sorry things have been so hard for you. I'm sorry we didn't always find it easy to understand each other, even if we always wanted the best for each other. Just some of the things I will always do, holding your cherished memory: Listening to Elvis, or Petula Clark. Visiting craft shows and crafting, baking cut-out cookies and decorating them with buttercream and 'jimmies', eating split pea soup (forever wishing for your heavy - but still my favorite - dumplings), or peanut butter cups, or Oreos, or Butterfinger, or Queen Anne cordial cherries, or Brazil nuts (don't get me started). Lavishly decorating the tallest Christmas tree I can fit in the house, listening to Ray Conniff. Drinking a glass of rose or cold duck with some Alfred Hitchcock or any good mystery. Yard sailing. Sewing on a button. Dead-heading petunias, or smelling geraniums. Carving pumpkins and baking the seeds. Making friends in a choir. Physically throwing myself into DIY jobs it seems like one woman shouldn't handle alone (yeah - I definitely inherited some traits...). Spoiling my cats. Buying chili powder or dill. Considering anything in a certain shade of blue. Rock-hunting on a beach. Planting lilacs. Singing old hymns, lullabyes, and innocently silly parodies. And often enough these days, looking in the mirror. On second thought, Mom, I've still got a lot of you right here. Don't be a stranger. 'For, my darling, I love you, and I always will.'

My Grandma Ann was probably the sweetest person I've met in my life, and her home was one of the most welcoming places I've ever been. I'll never forget her enduring love for her beloved pets and grandchildren.

I am so sorry for everyone’s loss. Ann was a very sweet woman and will be missed. I can still remember her laugh and her voice when we used to visit her and her love for her pets, her children and her grandchildren. I will hold those days fondly when I think of her.

If at all possible, I would really appreciate the opportunity to attend my sister-in-law's funeral in person. I understand the covid issue and would be willing to remain masked. If not, I will understand.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Love you Grandma. I will always remember how exciting it was to visit you in Steven’s Point. You were so welcoming and I loved spending time with you in the kitchen eating ginger snaps <3
