The Perkins family wishes to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and kind notes regarding our beloved Ann. The family also wishes to express their sympathies to the other victims and their families, and would like to thank the law officers, and both emergency and Santa Fe school personnel for their outstanding efforts.
We know Ann would want the students and faculty of Santa Fe High School, to whom she lovingly dedicated so much of her time, to remember to keep their hearts open, to discuss their feelings with family members, friends, and counselors in order to successfully conquer this tragedy.
Words cannot express how much we will miss our Ann, who was an amazing and devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. We respectfully request privacy at this time so that we may begin the healing process and adjust to life. Thank you for your understanding.
