Ann was a special Angel. She was sent to watch over us. She excelled in the mission that God sent her on.When her body ceased to function she sprouted her angel wings and flew into heaver. There she will see us when our turn comes. We will run to her and embrace her in love. She will wrap her angel wings around as in a cocoon of love and we will fly into heaven where we will live happily ever after.
