    Ann was a wonder! I worked at Digital and had many lunches with Ann in the Conference Room at the Mill when Ken was away. She was down to earth, always interested in your life, family and work. I last saw her at Emerson Hospital where she was volunteering at the front desk. Even after many years she recognized me and gave me a warm hug. Such a loss… sincere condolences to her family.
