I've always considered myself blessed to be named after my beautiful and elegant Aunt Anne Forte. She was with my mother Kathleen Murray Metzger the day I was born and years later cared for my mother through her final illness, many miles and states away from her beloved Western New York (God's country, as my granddaddy used to call it). As an RN and exceptionally loving person, she helped many people and we're all better for having known her. She was also riotously funny and at our last visit had my husband and me in stitches for a couple of hours.

I was saddened to learn of Anne's passing. As secretary to her sister Susanne, I had many enjoyable conversations with Anne when she would call the office to speak with her sister. She was funny and always had stories to share with me. I so appreciated her talent for crocheting as she once made me a little crocheted pocket which held a little crocheted cross with a little "prayer" included. She was also very well noted for her "dammit doll" which always amused me when I read the little poem it was accompanied with as though it were the first time reading it! I think of the Murray and Reeder family members often. The Murray and Perdicas family connection goes way back. May Anne rest in peace. Ann Perdicas Rossiter
