Ann’s mother passed away the day after Christmas. Her obituary is here, along with a list of charities that you might donate to in her memory.
As many of you probably know, Ann’s mother had been ill with Alzheimer’s for many years, and Ann’s portrayal of Mr. and Mrs. Willet in the Main Street series is based on Ann’s experiences with her mother. I read the most recent two Main Street books the other day, and the chapters about the Willets brought tears to my eyes. I can’t imagine what it’s like to have someone you love be there physically, but not mentally.
Let’s keep Ann and her family in our thoughts during this difficult time.
