Becky & Sally, I was deeply saddened to hear of your mother's and Chuck's death.
I will always have fondest memories of many wonderful times I had growing up in Sparta close to your mother and Alton & Mary. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families during this difficult time. Ann was a special friend and will be truly missed.

Ann, I have a hard time just expressing how much I love you and already miss you so much. You were the best BFF anyone could ever have in their lifetime. I am so sorry that you had to leave us so soon. I will miss your smile, your laughter, but most of all our trips, almost daily phone calls and texts just to check on each other and our families. You were the best mother, wife, grandmother, great-grandmother that anyone could ever dream of. You loved God and your family so much, I have admired and loved you since we met almost 30 years ago. I am not saying goodbye to you but just saying I will see you again soon and we will stroll heavens streets together!

To Sally and Becky and all of the rest of the family, I am so sorry for your loss and I will always be here for you as long as God let's me live. Your entire family has been a blessing to me to know and to love and I pray for God to give us all the strength we need over the next few weeks just to absorb this tremendous loss of your Mom and of Mr. Chuck. Love Teresa and Ken Jones

Dear Families, we were totally shocked by a phone call from a friend, Diane Sokol, late last evening. Dani and I were in GA for 10 days in May. We made several attempts to contact Chuck and Ann without any success. We drove to Eatonton, for the day, trying to make contact. As some of you know, we were neighbors for 10 years and we loved every minute of it. Going to trivia night, Ann and Lyn taking evening walks (having girl talks sharing the good and bad), going out to eat, holiday invitations. Very fond memories. Yes, we were deeply saddened by this news. We are grieving with you and sharing in your loss. Praying God will comfort you and give you strength during this difficult time. He health the broken in heart. Psalm 147:3. Much Love, Lyn and Dani

To all of you left behind, family and friends, my thoughts, prayers are with you all. When Sally called me last evening about Ann, I was shocked and felt like someone had stuck a knife in my heart. I was a caretaker for Mr. and Mrs. Thompson, Ann's parents, for several years until the Lord called them both home. I helped Ann to prepare the house so that she could put it on the market. I have so many fond memories with Sally & Becky during those times. I loved your mom with all my heart and she was precious to me. I'll miss hearing her voice and laugh. She was a very special lady. May God comfort you all in this time of sadness.
