Sorry to hear about Ann. She was a beautiful woman. I saw her last at the 40th Alcatraz Anniversary and didn't know it would be the last. I asked her what she though of the so-called documentary that wasn't an authentic portrayal of her daughter Yvonne. She said she told Mr Fortier but he wouldn't change it. She also said she had a picture of Yvonne she wanted to have shown but they wouldn't show it. It was great to see her and I will see her again when it's my turn. I know it was all very hard for her and her family and I will continue to send my prayers for her, Richard and her family. LaNada
