Dear Mezzatesta- Hearn family, I did not know Ann personally but I extend my condolences to your family. I Will keep your family in my prayers so that God may be with you during this difficult time. The scriptures say at 1Peter 4:8” Draw close to God and he will draw close to you”. May prayer and reading the Bible help to give you comfort af this time.
