Dear Kay and Bob, I have been in Florida for a couple of months and just saw the obituary for your daughter. I want to extend my condolences. I didn't know your daughter but I am sure she was a beautiful person having had two wonderful parents. Prayers and blessings go out to you. Take care. Carolyn
I'm so sorry to hear of Ann's death. It's challenging to manage diabetes, but I can only imagine how difficult it must have been for Ann. I remember Ann well, since she was such a dear friend to my sister, Sue (Meyer) Anderson. My sympathy to your family.
Ann's smile and fun nature were a gift to share at church, Job's Daughters, and other adventures. I loved knowing Ann and you family during my youth. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
Bob, Kay & Aunt Ruth: Am so sorry for your loss. You will be in our prayers. Love to you. Pete & Jan
Bob and Kay, Krista, Laurie, and family: I will always remember growing up next door to your family and Ann. As a young girl, I admired her for being the pretty cheerleader with a big smile! :) I know she spent her lifetime struggling with diabetes. Hopefully, research and donations will help to find a cure for this deadly disease and prevent other young girls and boys from having to struggle like she did. I'm happy to make a donation to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation in her name. My prayers are with you all, and especially with her boys. Ann is enjoying peace in Heaven now. Take care, Love, Mary
Dear Bob, Kay and family, I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter. It's hard to imagine your feelings but being Chrisitans, you have a big God to lean on to get you through. I will pray for your peace for this time and beyond. May God bless the Trench family with grace for healing. Sincerely, Pam Ruths
Robert, Kay, and Aunt Ruth. I am sorry to hear about your daughter and Granddaughter. If you don't remember me, I am Sonja the daughter of Agnes (Trench) and Bill Kline. Just us five girls: Diane, Nancy, Janet myself and Linda are left in our family. We live in Texas so I don't get to see many of the cousins anymore. May God Bless you all with the strength to process this grief of loss. I will say some prayers for all of you. I know you will miss her.

I'm thinking of Ann today and fondly remembering the many birthdays we celebrated together. I have always treasured her friendship. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Trench family. With love, Sue
My sympathies to your family. May the Lord hold you in the palm of his hands during this difficult time.
Dear Bob and Kay, I am so sorry to hear that Ann died on Sunday. She was one of my dearest friends during our Jr and Sr High school years. I have many happy memories of Ann from sleepovers to school activities. I will keep you in my prayers and hope I can make it to her service. Fondly, Lorene McDonald Rutherford
