  1. Ann, I too remember your Mom as a pretty incredible lady! Her influence will continue to affect the lives of many through you and Ari and many others.


  2. Ann, once again…a blessing from you sharing your memories and insights. We can all identify with some of the same quirky, dysfunction that characterizes all of us & our family histories. I only met your mother once on the day you & Bill married. The challenges of that year become even clearer through your written reflections after time and healing. I admire and appreciate your honesty and open heart. Love you much!


  3. Once again you touch my heart and help me to realize little things you thought were little are actually big things that carry over to lots of aspects of your life. The one piece of “advice” I most remember my mother telling me was, “the customer is always right”. It took me a lot of years to realize that piece of advice was about more than the customer. It’s about how you treat all people, peers, loved ones, (this could go on forever) lol, and of course the customer. Like you, I try to follow that piece of advice from my mom and pray it shows in my everyday actions. I know I do forget at times, (sorry that’s the daddy in me) I will continue , to the best of my ability, to remember it and teach it to others through my actions and deeds. Again, Ann, thank you for your wonderful words and helping us all to stop and remember. Sending my thoughts and prayers to you and yours.


  4. Dearest Ann, Your writing is so beautiful. I am sitting here with tears remembering Libby, your Mom, and all the years we shared in our connected lives. I am so blessed to have been so closely related to her.

    Ann you are such a talented, loving and warm person. Your writings inspire me and provide me with so much “food for thought.” Thank you. I love you, Aunt Beth


    • Dear Aunt Beth, Your words mean so much, especially because I know your heart and its beauty. I think about all of Mother’s dreams and the plans she had when that college photograph was taken. I know ultimately though the eternal reward she has that surpasses it all. I love you too!
