Ann was my best friend. She was so smart, patient, funny, honest, trustworthy, everything you could ever want in a friend. I miss our daily texting, and her wonderful advice. I'm fortunate to have had seven years of friendship with Ann. She will be forever missed by me. I'm glad she's not suffering anymore.
