I remember sitting in our backyard one evening, in about 1966. I was sitting in Aunt Anns' lap and did not want to go inside the house for a sweater and leave the comfort of her lap and her soft silky skirt. I have many fond memories of her and I never left her presence without knowing she loved me. She always understood that investing encouragement and noticing the value of others around her was worthy of her attention and she really did enjoy life. We began writing to each other in 1969 and she has always been faithful with her pen and paper to keep in touch. She made a difference in this world and we will all miss her so very much. -Laurie

Dear John. Lisa, Chris, Khiven, Claudette, and all those whose lives were touched by Ann in her long and productive life. Thank you, Lisa, for the beautiful retrospective of Ann's life, and especially the poem at the end. I believe you've really captured Ann's essence as well as her wishes for those she's left behind. As Ann's sister-in-law for 56 plus years, I can certainly attest to her thoughtfulness and kindness, her generosity, her lively intelligence, her wonderful sense of whimsey, her love of the earth and all the beauty we see around us every day. Ann loved every living thing (with the possible exception of mosquitoes), and was an early advocate of conservation in all forms. I can't wash my dishes without thinking of Ann and wondering if I'm using too much water to rinse them before putting them in the dishwasher. Sam has always known he was blessed to have such a wonderful sister. We've had some great times together, especially when you children were small, camping trips to Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Anza Borego, the Redwoods, and the incredible northern California coast. We shared visits to the Pasadena grandparents (Grandpa and Grandma Ford were so happy to have all their babies around them at once) and our unforgettable visits to Berkeley. Everywhere I look I find little mementos of Ann and our times together. So many fun memories. Hers is certainly a life worth celebrating. We love you all, and are with you in our thoughts. Love always, Sam and Delcie
