I'm sorry to have to tell you that our wonderful Ann lost her fight today :(

Dave let me know and as you can imagine he is devastated. He wanted to tell you himself, but he is unable to find the words right now.

Ann was a wonderful person and a good friend and Iíll miss her greatly, I canít believe sheís gone.

My thoughts go out to Dave, her family :hug2:

Oh......stunning news...I am so very very sorry for the loss. I am reading the words and can't imagine this grim ending. DW and I have been praying before dinner each night since hearing of her illness. Tonight prayers for her soul and for healing for a grieving family. So very sorry.

Ann. She was a special lady. She saw me through a tough time last last year. I was hoping to do the same for her. I am just gutted.

My heart goes out to Dave. And to her children.

No more words.

So so sad, just devastating.

It was an honour to know her.

She had boundless love humour and generosity

I will miss her very very much xx

I have no idea what to say. :sigh:

I sit here, looking at the screen, my mind a complete blank. Suddenly, I realize 10 or 15 minutes have passed and I've no idea where the time went. I'm just truly at a loss for words.

Somehow, I'm sorry just doesn't seem to cut it.

I only knew Ann briefly, through the forum, after exchanging messages about New York, following our trip in June. So, so sad to hear this, and gutted for Dave and all Ann's family and friends.
God bless, sleep in peace Ann.

I was wondering...we have a couple of members right now in the magical place that drew us all together...I wonder if one of them would mind doing something to honour Ann there on behalf of us all? I have no idea what. But I just had that thought between all these tears.

lozzy
24-08-2012, 08:32 PM
I really can't believe what I have just read, in never meet Ann but she also seemed to live life to the full.
I just want her lovely Dave and family to know I am thinking of them at this sad time.
Goodnight Ann, say hello to Mike and my grandad for me. X x x

I'll be there Sunday. I can do something. I don't know what though. Just let me know.

Tink

Dave, Ann (as you know better than any of us) was a beautiful, and loving woman. May she be in peace, out of pain, and without fear. There are no adequate words to express how much we care about you, and her children. Please know, that if you ever need support from a group of people who loved her dearly, come here to us. We'll cry together.

Sarah (PsychoAlice) has the idea of placing some flowers on the beach at Grand Floridian. I helped Ann & Dave plan their honeymoon night at the GF. We will do this in her honor.

PsychoAlice

Screw you cancer...meet us at the beach Ann. We will be there for you.

Suebeattie
24-08-2012, 09:13 PM
Perhaps if you're allowed maybe you could light and let go of one of those paper latern things. Or maybe a couple of balloons, if Ann had a favourite character perhaps see if you can get it in a balloon and let it go at the end of the fireworks in the magic kingdom.
May she rest in peace and I will pray for Dave.

OMG, Donna and I are so, sorry to read this. Although we never met Ann personally she seemed like a wonderful loving person. Cancer is claiming the lives of way too many wonderful people. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dave and the rest of her family.

"We go on, through the laughter and the tears..."

Illuminations tonight, was in Memory of our Ann. Herself and I were there, and sent some petals on the water for our dear friend. Not a huge display, but heartfelt.

"Goodbye, Ann. We hardly knew you, but felt your joy and love from across the ocean."

Meant to add the "hardly knew you" was from a reference to President John F. Kennedy. "Johnny we hardly knew ye..." It alludes to the short time spent here on earth. Our Ann's time was too short, but as beautiful as possible, and so full of love and kindness.

I can't believe it. We're in Cornwall at moment and today is the first day I've had Internet.

I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Ann. My heart goes out to Dave and the family.

My dad's farm is in the middle of nowhere so on a clear night I can see the stars clearly with no light pollution. I often sit on the gate, look up to the stars and have a good chat with all the special people We've lost. I've had a chat with Mick but I'll look out for Ann and send her our love.

RIP Ann my lovely lady. Xxxxx
