    I am so sorry to hear of the death of Ann. The passing away of a loved one is always with much sorrow. May we have faith and confidence in the Bible’s promise of a time when pain, sickness and death are a thing of the past (Revelation 21:3, 4). My condolences are with the family at this difficult time.

    Bill, Linda, Vicky, Cathy and Mike…
    Judy and I were blessed to have met Ann and all of you when we first moved into our old neighborhood in the mid 60’s. To this day, we
    have always considered all of you our BEST and forever friends. We know that ANN is somewhere right now enjoying watching and listening as everyone is saying nice things about her and tell hundreds of funny and happy stories that they experienced with Ann. We
    will miss Ann very much and will always hear her laughing when we think of her. Bill and Ann have always been very special friends
    and true members of the O’Connor family. We are also thankful for all the Wright girls. Without them, we would never have been able to go out to dinner on the weekends in Indianapolis. Hopefully, they saved enough of our babysitting $$$ to afford a nice car or dress. Seriously, we will always remember and keep Ann in our thoughts and prayers. We’re sure Bill knows and appreciates how fortunate he was when a long time ago Ann said YES, when he proposed to her. May God Bless You Ann … You earned it.
    Love to all the Wrights and their extended families … Judy and Joe O’Connor
