I just wanted to say that one of mt favorite memories of your mom Ann, Natalie, was around mid college/late college for you I believe when I was trying out being a vegetarian and you had bought me a "Starving students vegetarian cookbook." It was probably Christmas break and I went over to your house and your mom helped us make pineapple pepper stir fry and it was so good. I remember being in awe of her cooking skills (which I guess was kind of because my mom hardly cooked but nonetheless I really appreciated her doing that with me/us). Later after we had enjoyed that scrumptious meal she showed us her maps, globes and star maps. Your mom was not only gentle and loving (which is definitely true!) But very interesting and smart as well. You take after her in those ways.

If you have photos of Mom and would like to upload them to the gallery here, please do. I did not have time to upload them one at a time here, and opted to put them on Caring Bridge because it was easier. But we would love your photos and stories of Anne. Love, The Ballingers
