Danny and Family, was so saddened by your families loss of Ann. Although our friendship was a once or twice a year visit in Florida at Diana's, it was always an enjoyable time. I have so much respect and admiration for both yourself and Ann and the way that y'all enjoyed life to the fullest. Rest easy my friend and if there's a bakers kitchen in heaven, I'll have a cheesecake please.
