Hello Bill, just heard of the death of Ann Marie, and immediately heard her great laugh. I have such fond memories of those Cursillo years and the many teams we were on together. She has always been a person I was happy to know. Take care, my sympathy and prayers. De Colores. Mary Alice and John Demangone, Towanda

Dear Hoppy and family,
We were so sad to hear of Ann's passing. I will always remember her smile and laugh greeting me either as a younger Flannery cousin or as an adult visiting to catch up. She was a wonderful lady and your smiles are evidence of her wonderful way as a person. Your sadness is shared.

Billy, Iread Ann Marie's obit. and found it hard to believe because she was still young according to my thinking. We believe that she is not dead but merely living in another place. This being so because JESUS conquered DEATH by dying on the cross. Sorrow is surely the mode;praising God's will because HE knows what is best for Ann Marie is the WAY. You are in my prayers as is Ann Marie OUR LORD JESUS GIVE YOU HIS STRENGTH IN THIS TIME OF DEEP LOSS.
