I remember Anne with an e. She was beautiful within and without. One of her many gifts was her generosity. . One year she taught the family painting. She loved beauty. Played the piano well, painted, grew flowers, cooked like a dream and I can't forget how she changed the face of her fireplace. Whatever she turned her hand to she did well, Many wonderful memories.
