My dearest Anne, my biggest regret is not enough memories although the ones I do have will be treasured forever. I loved the times playing golf together, the 4 of us sure did laugh a lot. I'm still jealous of how well you can shoot, lol. The Thanksgivings where your home was our home, you and Elizabeth always outdid yourselves! The long trip to the grand canyon, not sure how you stood me, guess it was the patience of a Saint! I always knew when I came there, I'd be loved, and coffee always ready!
Life will never be the same without you but heaven is celebrating to have gained another angel! RIP my friend and one day we'll all be together again.

I never had the opportunity to know Anne, but my sympathies go out to my good friends Richard and Michael and all they who will miss her.

There are no words to say how sad my heart is today to have lost my Anne. I have close to 50 years of memories with her, from the time we were in our early 20s until now. I can say without exception, Anne was the kindest, sweetest person I have ever known. She brought sunshine into every situation and always an encourager. My life was brighter because of her unconditional and loving friendship. I miss her already and I know till I hug her again, my life won’t be the same. I love you Anne. Out of sight will never mean out of heart
