Ann always greeted everyone with a smile and a kind word. Ann leaves behind a legacy, that she and Junior created of Serving the Hill Country.

I am so sorry for your loss, your mom's sweet smile and determination helped shape her life and the direction of the business she and Jr had built together. I just found out about her passing and I am sending condolences to the family. As a little girl I have found memories of visiting my grandma in Center Point and going to the Fritz grocery store. Loved seeing your mom then and always as an adult I had great respect for her work ethic and her strength. So many great memories of how genuine she was as a person, she did so much for my family when I was little. Just another example of her giving and servant heart. May you find peace and comfort in knowing she is with her beloved and heaven gained another angel. Blessings, Denise LeMeilleur
