Ann presents an excellent and most enjoyable program. It’s one of the best you will ever hear on staying young at heart and living life to the fullest. Kora’s story is one that all need to hear. Ann’s talent for sharing it with such warmth, humor, and inspiration will hold any audience captive and is a beautiful tribute to her amazing grandmother.

I was at the SHBC networking event yesterday. I didn’t get to speak with you at the event but I wanted to follow up with you and let you know that I really enjoyed your presentation. Your grandmother sounds like an amazing woman and you are so lucky to have her in your life. I especially loved the message of positivity that you spoke of throughout your presentation as that is one of the tenets of my business idea as well. I am trying to start a clothing line that incorporates positive messages on the inside of the clothing, for the wearer’s eyes only. That way the wearer can focus on the positive message as they go throughout their day while the outside world is none the wiser. I’m really excited about this idea because I believe that the smallest things can have the biggest impact on people’s lives. Thanks for your time,
Walking on air is a great way to describe how I think most women felt after our meeting this morning. We laughed, we cried and we talked it out with your great questions. On the bucket list question, our small group leader specifically asked me if I had a bucket list. I told her I don’t keep a bucket list, but that when I am able to experience something special such as seeing Stonehenge, visiting my daughter in Spain, or witnessing a talk like yours with a great group of people, I make note of it in my journal as something of which I am lucky to be a part. I guess I fill up my bucket and then make the list:) Anyway, thank you again for your time at our meeting today. I feel like I should pay you a psychiatry fee like Lucy in the Peanuts comics. God bless you and your family,
That was a great presentation yesterday. I really enjoyed hearing your story and that of your grandmother’s. I have some longevity genes on my mom’s side (us Vikings — I’m half Danish — are hearty people!), and my great aunt just turned 99! Grandparents unfortunately are deceased; my grandfather passed in 2001 shortly following 9/11 (and the only trip I ever missed when I was supposed to fly out that day to go home to celebrate his 90th birthday with him) from untreated prostate cancer (his choice) and my grandmother nine months later because she couldn’t live without him basically. They would probably both still be alive had he gotten treatment, and I really miss them a lot and have so many dreams about them still it’s weird.
Thank you so much for sharing your story yesterday. I’m so glad I came.
Ann – - good morning! Thanks so much for the engaging presentation yesterday to the New Landings group. It was very entertaining, but also thought provoking and I think left our job seekers with some useful tidbits of information. Again, thanks so much for your time and interest in New Landings. Have a fantastic weekend – -Warm regards ~

You are amazing. I had no idea of your story. Your grandma is my new hero!
I want to thank you, again, for coming and speaking to our 7th grade girls. I think they really connected with the idea that everyday people (including themselves), can be leaders. After you left, quite a few of of the girls enthusiastically told me how much they liked your presentation, and how they wished you had told more stories! That is an amazing accomplishment! Kids are normally bored by “speakers”. I know my Caroline was listening, because at dinner that night she recounted for my husband all the stories you told. Have a wonderful Christmas and continued luck in the new year with Koraspondence. Sincerely,
