Dear Gangel family,
I am so sad to learn of Ann's passing. Growing up she was always so full of life and energy and it is hard to imagine her without those traits. We had so many good times on Swim Team and in school activities. I know she will be greatly missed. Sorry I can't be there to support you during this difficult time (I'm currently out of the country). Please know my thoughts are with you.
Take care,
Jeanne Mercer-Ballard

So Sorry for your loss. I got to know Ann when she would take my son Austin to school along with Ryan and Julianne. She was a wonderful woman. As I told Duncan and Julianne on Saturday. If they need anything I only live a block away.

Once again, so sorry for your loss of a Mother, Sister and a wonderful person.

Dear Gangel Family,
I am so very sorry to hear the news of Ann's passing. I regret that we did not stay in touch after High School. Although I went to school with Ann for many years, it wasn't until our senior year that we truly became friends. I have many fantastic memories at your house. Ann was an amazingly talented, caring, and genuinely funny person who truly had a heart of gold. May God be with you at this time of loss.

So sorry to hear of Ann's passing. I have not been in touch with her since High School but we had lots of fun in band, choir, and cheerleading. I am truly sorry for your loss at such an early time in her life and the suffering prior. I have been thinking of you all and praying for entire family. May the memories heal you in this difficult time. God Bless and take care.
