Kris, Mike, Kathi,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was such a sweet lady and so much fun to work with back in the McDonald’s days. When I think of her I see her sweet smile and either her yellow McDonalds uniform or her pink rollers in her hair! Peace and blessings to you all.

I’m sorry to miss “Mom Ann” and she was a very wonderful person.
I have been with her for Thanksgiving and Christmas for 20 years.
I love you with all my heart.
