It can be so hard to face the first year without your loved one, but the love of family and friends can carry you through.

We had many great times, kids and all, Easter egg hunts, food and drink, golf stories and sailing on the Sound. I'm sure you boys can keep up your Mom's spirit as you go forward.

Anne was such a true and dear friend, if it was sailing on Bianca, having fun with the Tues. night ladies or super-bowl parties we always had a great time. Her smile and wit were infectious. I will miss her dearly. My sympathy to the
Troy family., Love Jean

Anne, gone too young, too soon. I have so many wonderful memories of the years crewing on Bianca. Win or lose, it was always fun, every race a new adventure... so many laughs. Your joie de vivre was contagious. You will be missed. Fair winds and tides where ever you are.

I am saddened to hear that Annie has passed on. She was a wonderful friend and no matter how long it was between phone calls it was like we spoke the day before. She will be missed. My love to all of you.
