  2. Lillian Babb (Freddie) says:

    Elaine, Mark, Gregg and the rest of the family, I just you to know that I’m sorry
    For the loss of your Mom. Ann was such a sweet person, always smiling and humble. I remember as a young married couple, Freddie and I would visit with Arch and Ann, and
    I loved how they always made us feel genuinely welcome. Ann will be missed by many,
    But by no one more that her children and grandchildren. Love and prayers for you all!
