  1. My favorite memory of Ann Margaret was when she would come to my house to visit and my late dog Max would insist on sitting on her lap the entire time she visited. She loved my sweet tea and would always have just a small glass because she did not want it to keep her up at night . Ann Margaret was not only my Jafra lady but very much a part of my extended family and a good friend. I will miss her terribly. Arlene

  4. I can still hear her voice asking if I needed anything from Jafra. Her calls were never just about Jafra; I learned how her children and grandchildren were and how proud she always was of everyone. She lived and loved well. I will miss actually hearing her voice. Prayers and blessings for comfort and peace. Nancy Ferrari
