  1. Ann was a well-respected and loved member of our Federal Health community. She was always giving support and true service to industry partners and associations. I am so sad to lose her as a colleague and friend, and she will definitely be missed by us all. My prayers and condolences go to her husband, son, animals, family, co-workers, and friends as they grieve.

  2. I am so heartbroken by the loss of one my best friends and colleagues. There is so much I want to say but I will just say that I will miss her terribly. It was hard to be at HIMSS without my breakfast and networking buddy. Prayers to Joe and her family. Huge hugs to all my colleagues that have been grieving alongside me.

  3. Very saddened to hear about Ann’s passing. She was a great person and I very much enjoyed getting to know her.
