    Ann G. Holland

    Ann Holland (September 25, 1920 - August 6, 1980) was someone who both friends and family considered Big-Hearted. She never sought to be noticed or recognized for showing Big-Heartedness because it was just part of her nature to do good to others. Ann, along with her husband James, taught her children about God and living lives that would be pleasing to Him. She not only talked about how to show kindness, unconditional love and selfless giving...

    John J. Pizzo

    John Pizzo (June 8, 1929 - November 15, 2009) was a Big-Hearted person. He had a heart of gold and was the kind of man who would give you the shirt off his back if he knew you needed it. His sometimes gruff mannerisms could hide the fact that he was as Big-Hearted as those who knew him realized. But I think he gave that impression because he didn't want to draw attention to himself or advertise his generosity. However, once you got to...
