I am heartbroken about Ann’s passing. You have my deepest sympathy. I cherished her friendship. She was a caring, kind and gentle woman. We enjoyed many chats over the years at the market, during egg deliveries or on the phone. I will cherish those chats about our children, our travel, how the chickens were (or were not) laying, and what fresh vegetables were available. God bless all of you and may your memories of Ann bring you joy and peace.

Dear Bird Family,
Thank you for sharing the memories of your beloved with us. Mrs. Bird sounds like a lovely, caring person. I regret that I never met her. Perhaps we will meet in paradise where Mrs. Bird will be raised to perfect health and vigor – for our Loving Heavenly Father has promised at John 5:28&29 that there is going to be a resurrection. To learn more, please visit www.jw.org and search “resurrection”. I wish you all peace and comfort during your time of grief.

Your mother was, and will always be, a very special woman. I (Julia) will never forget a day when, despite all she had to do, she took time out for tea at her picnic table when I was going through a hard time. She always made time for others. Our prayers are with you!
