Ann Lauer-Go in Gentleness Go in Peace
From Jim Lauer:
26 February 2017 Mrs. Ann Lauer, wife of CAPT Jim Lauer, USN-Ret. This announcement is from Jim:
"Dear friends and family. It is with a heavy heart that I am saddened to inform you that my loving wife of over 48 years passed away today after a gallant battle with Neuro-Endocrine Cancer. She had been in the care of hospice at home since 23 December 2016. She will be remembered at a Memorial Mass of Catholic Burial at St Paul Catholic Church and inurned at the Mount Saint Francis Columbarium in Colorado Springs.
Arrangements will be promulgated when details are finalized.
Liz, JJ and I thank you all for the prayers, thoughts, cards, letters, calls, e-mail and support throughout this painful journey. Ann has touched many of you throughout her life on earth and I know her life has been better because of that contact. I hope yours has been too. I will miss her dearly but I know she is in a better place.
Thanks and God Bless. Jim."
