Dear Bob, Denise, Janice, and Betty, I just heard about Ms. Ann's home going. I lost touch after all these years, but I have thought about you all at times and the good times we had back during the "Parr Days". I am sorry that your mom passed. She was always one of the sweetest women I ever knew. Each of you are in my prayers during this difficult time. Take care and always remember I love you all. With Love Gale Sternenberg Boland

Hugs to all the Ariail family. I know there was a glorious reunion in Heaven on Thursday! Ms. Ann was always so nice to my family and me; always taking extra time to talk to the children when they were little. I fondly remember her kindness. I know Ms. Ann would want you to be happy that she is with all the family and friends she loved and missed. I wish there was something I could do to help... Much love, Ann

I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in the resurrection promise at John 5;28,29 that reads; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all that are in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.

I will always remember how she (and Mr. Bull) made me feel like I was invited into the family while I was a student at Clemson. She was a special person as is her family.

Our deepest sympathy to the family. What a wonderful lady and friend. Was always great to see and visit with Ann. Cherish the memories of her and we pray God
will wrap his arms around each of you and give you His peace. Enjoyed our years together at SCE&G.
The tigers have lost one of their biggest fans.
Blessings on all of the family.

Bob, Margaret and family,
So sorry to hear of "Ms. Ann's" passing. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the Lord keep you in his loving arms during this most difficult time. I know she will be watching "her" Tigers play from the best place heaven has to offer this season yelling "Go Tigers" and I'm sure she will have her friend, Glenn, beside her, too!
With much love and sympathy,
