Phone rang this afternoon when I was at lunch. It was my father. Mrs. Dow passed away, and thought you'd want to know. When I was a child, and my parents would go on vacation, my sister and I knew we would have a special visitor with us for the week; Mrs. Dow. My fond memories of Mrs. Dow, lovingly keeping watch over my sister and myself, during my parents vacations, remain vivid. Many years later, my mother would tell me on occasion, that she would bump into Mrs. Dow here and there, and would always ask my mother how my sister and I were doing. Her memory is indelible, through kindness and caring. My thoughts are with her family and friends. May her memory be for blessings.
Beautiful video of one of the most precious women I have ever known... My YaYa, my buddy, my other grandmother, my friend and favorite person to stay with me when my parents went away. I'll love you forever Ann, and keep you close to my heart forever.
Very sweet lady. Many years ago, I remember my mom, who was also Ann, and I sitting with her and her granddaughter Lisa at bingo in Salem quite often. She was always smiling and happy. Loved the video.
It was an honor to have spent time with you. Im so happy to have been your chauffeur. We always had fun on the bus. You always enjoyed the simple things in life. I know your making more necklaces, laughing ,telling jokes. You are a very special lady. I will for ever cherish our time together. The Senior Center has lost a Rose.
