I visited with Anne last Summer at JoAnn Patykula's Home over Pizza with Uncle Joe and Aunt Stasia's Children. Even though I hadn't seen Anne since my childhood we had an instant connection of love and appreciation for each other. I was truly blesssed to have seen her and getting to know her for even a brief time. May you Rest In Peace my Dear Cousin Anne❤️
