    My thoughts & prayers are with the entire Grove family. I grew up across the street from Ann and she was my first friend. We played together for hours, day after day. I haven't seen her in years, but those childhood memories last forever.

    My sincerest sympathy to all of you.

    Ann was such an awesome, kind person. My condolences to the family-I’m sorry for your loss. Ann was a big part of my childhood as she babysat me while I was in elementary school-she was always kind, had fun activities, and taught me some great life lessons. There are so many good memories I have at her home and with her. It was always great to catch up with her when I would run into her over the years while I was home. My thoughts and prayers are with Eric and the rest of the family.

    I have a classroom next to our school cafeteria where Ann would be working with her co-workers.  Ann was very conscious to ensure meals for our students be served on schedule.  I am glad to have spent time with her.  May your memories help in giving comfort.
