We would make each other laugh all the time. Last time we spoke you mentioned you were upset about the news you had received about your health. You have been on my mind lately and I wish I could talk to you! I know Anne-Marie from the writing world. She was working in another book and she had me read a couple pages of it. I just wish she would had been able to finish it. Love you and miss you!

I shall truly miss my favorite niece. She loved every body and said " no one is a stranger". We had many good times on her visits up north. She truly spoiled her grandparents and made a point of visiting them . Enjoyed many a glass of wine with her and I envied her love of cooking. Fly high with the angels my sweet Anne Marie. Love you, Aunt Mary

Anne-Marie had just started her Tampa Area Romance Authors (TARA) presidency on my first visit to the chapter meeting. I overheard her talking about critiquing a member's manuscript and started pestering her to take me under her wing. She reluctantly agreed, and from that moment on we were critique partners, story plotters, help mates, and sisters. Her goal in life was to be loved and she achieved that goal with everyone who came in contact with her.
See you on the other side my sweet Anne-Marie.
Love and kisses!!!

Anne-Marie has been one of my best writing friends for at least 15 years. We met at Tampa Area Romance Writers (TARA), and A-M was the heart and soul of that group. I loved working with her on the TARA contest for many years, serving on the Board with her, and also attending her CAbI shopping parties! Mostly I just miss her encouragement and the joy she spread to everyone. She will be missed very much.

I was so sorry to hear of Anne Marie's passing. I know her from the writing world. She was a special part of our group called The Writer's Playground. Always smiling. Very sweet and kind. Sending prayers and hugs to her family and friends for their loss.
