Eric and I are so sorry to hear of Ann's passing! She was a character! I will forever crossing the street as a child to go visit Ann; she always loved to make my sister and cousins laugh. Even back then (the 70's, she loved rocking, drinking Pepsi (or was it Coke) and had a perpetual crush on my Uncle Jimmy (Smith). Lol. Thinking of all of y'all now and in the days ahead.
