    To Cousin Ann’s Family, please accept our deepest sympathy on your Mom/Grandmother’s passing. She is now dancing again with Joe. Diane and I always enjoyed our visits with Ann in Cheticamp. She welcomed us with open arms. Her wit was endless. On our last visit, I reminded her of how much she reminded me of her Mother Cora. Very quickly she responded (with a twinkle in her eye), “I was looking in the mirror this morning, and said: Mom what are you doing in there.” We send our prayers, hugs and love. Ann was a very special lady. Sorry we can’t be with you. Love Fred and Diane Hampton
