  1. My thoughts and prayers are with Ron, Ethan and Spencer. I worked with Ann over 15 years. About 10 years ago, she and sons Ethan and Spencer attended a staff xmas party at our house. Ann was a wonderful person. She was always smiling and good-natured and easy to work with. She dummied The Entertainer for me, then Rave, the daily of course, Creative Parenting, South Bay Source, South Bay extra and just about anything you can imagine. I worked with her when I was features editor, entertainment editor and special sections editor. She was always a delight, and I miss her. My prayers are with you. Don Lechman
