Memories Timeline


  1. We had such a fun and lovely time with Ankin a few years back. We are so sorry to hear she has passed. Our condolences to the family.
    Cousin Rose (Soultanian) and sons Michael, Jeffrey and Terry Tveraas

  2. So many memories of you growing up.
    You would visit your family in NY, right next door to me. I knew when you've arrived because I would hear you calling and chasing your dog across our yard as soon as she got out of your car. I looked forward to it every summer. I miss those times, and you and your family. Bless you Ankin. Peter
