We're sorry to report that Ann's mother is gravely ill and the family has been told the end is near. As we come together with our families for our holiday, I'm sure we will all send prayers and thoughts to Ann's family in their sad time. We know you will understand her absence for a time. Thank you all for your kind support.
Ann is also known as Taluula and is, of course, one of the Three Muses and also a great supporter of Take a Word.
