    Dear Mrs. Ormond, I can't begin to express how sorry I am to hear about the passing of Ann. As you're probably aware, Ann and I lost touch many years ago. The last we spoke, she was living with you (and her son) and we had several conversations (and I think a visit or two) but we did not stay in touch for whatever reason. Life just moves so fast. I remember that she shared she was "sick" but never disclosed the severity of her illness. I wish I could go back in time but I will always cherish the memories and stories we shared. There were so many. She was such a big part of my childhood and upbringing. Times I will never forget. I remember you, your husband and your house so vividly. As you know (I think), I lost my sister many years ago and I know how difficult a time this is for you. Please know that Ann will live on in our memories and in our hearts. She is in a safe and happy place now. My sincere condolences to you and your family. Best wishes, Sue-Ellen Margulis
