Ann Skelton

I received an email from Ann's grandaughter, Brittany, today... letting me know that Ann had passed away... I am posting her email here, just in case you were missed. If you 'd like to link to Ann's blog, Life at Ann's Place... here's the link.

This is Brittany, Ann's granddaughter. I wanted to inform you that Ann passed away peacefully in her sleep yesterday morning. We know that her blog friends and email friends where very important and dear to her so wanted to take the time to notify you of what happenend. If you see I have left anyone off of this email list that she was close to as well, please take the a moment to inform them as well.

The memorial will take place:
Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at 7pm
First Baptist Church of Warsaw
7161 S. FM 148
Kaufman, TX 75142

Thank you -

Brittany must be an awful lot like Ann. In her time of grief, she took the time to email her grandmother's email and blogging friends. Ann was like that. Always thinking of others regardless of the pain she was going through. The bloggersphere has lost a treasure...

Ann Skelton, we will certainly miss you down here in French Lique... God Bless You Always.

I'm so glad you let us know. She hadn't posted in a year so I felt sure she wasn't well.

Oh, Dixie! I'm so glad you dropped by to let me know this. While I hadn't run across Ann in my blog travels, it sounds like I missed meeting a wonderful lady. I'll be sure and drop by there to pay my respects.

Thank you, Dixie, for your sweet comments, thoughts, and prayers. I am going to take a break from blogging, and I will post more on that tomorrow.

Love you much...

I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her. How sweet of her granddaughter to let everyone know.

If I ever go more than a week without posting or alerting everyone about a bloggy break or something, call out the Royal Mounties. :)
I will never go a long time without posting without letting someone know the reason WHY.

Thanks for liking my table..I am very proud of it. I need to put a sealant on it but most everything I've used in the past left the whiteness YELLOWISH. Do you know what I should use?

What all have you got planned for summer? Projects? Trips? just hanging out?, too. :)
xoxo bj
