Memories & Candles
My name is Fabiana Moreira Alves, I'm Brazilian, and in 1993 I went to live in the United States. Ann was my first teacher of English, and certainly one of the best people I have met in life. It was a difficult time in my life and she helped me to communicate and get my life in a different country. She helped me in so many things, not just another language, but a new culture, a new way of living.

To the Murray and Hall families,
I am so very sorry that Ann has passed away. I enjoyed getting to know her and her family after my Dad married Alberta. She had a great sense of humor, always very kind and fun to be with. She had a wonderful family and so many caring friends. It is truly a difficult loss for her to be taken from us so soon. May the many wonderful memories you have or her help comfort all of you.

Ann was a lively person in all she did. I was acquainted through Dental wives and English teaching. It is sad that this disease can strike anyone without discrimination. Our sincere condolences.
