    Donnie, Ann was really a special person, that always had a smile on her lovely face, with a heart full of caring for others! She will be deeply missed, but our knowledge is - she is home with the Lord, with no further pain and suffering, dancing and singing with the angels of Heaven. Take care Donnie, Love, Bill and Debbie Thornton
