Thanks to everyone for the kind words.  The family we have in racing and Spec Miata in particular is truly something amazing.

Sad to hear this news. I've never met Ann but from all accounts she was a special kind hearted person. My condolences and prayer for you and your family Dave.

Thank You to all who sent flowers and well wishes,, They are appreciated. The Lemons of love donation site is still open. Jill, who runs that program also owns Fresh Air system Technology (FAST) that makes cool suits. Jill went to high school with my little sister, and went through cancer treatment the same time that I did. Her and Ann clicked from the first time they met. It is small charity and every dollar gets put to good use.

 

Ann started working here as a "phone girl", she both loved and hated that title. But I could look at the caller ID on the phone and tell how long a conversation it would be; Elaine Rossini was at least 30 minutes. Chris Haldeman varied depending upon how close to UPS pick up we where. And if he had another rush overnight shipment. But she loved talking to customers. She treated an order for lug nuts the same as a potential new car sale. She will be missed by all
