Patsy and I are deeply saddened by Ana's untimely passing. She was truly one of God's best on this earth and it was a special gift to be able to call her "Friend". We will miss her profoundly. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, extended family, and all those whose lives she touched.  May her soul and those of our departed classmates rest in peace. Amen

I am sure that Ana must know that her 1st great-grandchild was born 2 days after she passed.  Hopefully they met one another in their heavenly realm, and will certainly be reunited one day.  We welcome her great-granddaughter, Kalaya Marie McCann - all 6lbs 15 oz into Ana's family and circle of friends.
