Aunt Anne will be sorely missed. She was one of the most wonderful people we have ever met. Anne was a most warm and engaging woman who was loved by everyone in the family. Anne always seemed to have a smile and a laugh at every occasion. The glint in those Irish Mullen eyes of hers was always a joy to see. We will always treasure the memories of our dinners with you at Uncle Don and Aunt Anne’s home on Angela Boulevard when we were first married in 1970 and living in South Bend. My parents loved their winter visits to Marco Island when they stayed with your folks during the years they lived there. Aunt Anne was rich in her love of her family. God bless you and your families in her memory and may she rest in peace. Love, John and Kathleen Hickey

Aunt Ann, you were and are, still special in all my memories of the past. From our small trips up to Gary, Indiana, so you could visit Uncle Don, while he was being treated, to the loving times when I would bike ride over to your home. There was a special place within me when you would say, hi Johnny, did you come to help me paint or play with Donny. I of course would help you paint and also play, and you always had a smile one could feel and see. As time went by, and so, so fast, everyone aged and went their own ways, but those great memories, just sitting writing this, brings a smile to my face. Thank you for all the good memories, I will love you until all my memories are gone. Rest in peace. May the roads rise up to meet you, may the wind be at your back, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hands.

John and Cindy Arnt
