Ann Richards

“My favorite bumper sticker says ‘No child has a behind left’….”

When I was growing up, we were taught to call women “ladies” and ladies were referred to as “Ma’am”. Ann Richards was a great daughter of Texas and was that unique kind of lady who only flourishes in the South. Thank you, ma’am, for all you did for all whom you met in your public and private life.

The family requests that memorial gifts be made to the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders through the Austin Community Foundation, P.O. Box 5159, Austin, Texas 78763, 512-472-4463,

This sounds like an absolutely wonderful project, you should read about it here, and if you’re sold already, ya’ll fire up that credit card here.
