Dearest Anne,
This news so saddens me. We first met when I returned from college and resumed my duties as a Eucharistic Minister at SJA 24 years ago. You welcomed me with open arms and had always been so warm and loving. You came to the Church for my wedding and wished me well when I became pregnant. You always talked lovingly about your family in Berkeley Heights. Heaven has truly gained an angel. May you Rest In Peace. I will truly miss you, Anne.
Love always, Joyce

I first met Agnes and Anne Boland by telephone arrangement in the lobby of the Penn Garden Hotel in Manhattan in June 1969.
She said I would recognise her by her beige and coral sweater and skirt. It wasn't until the appointed time that I realised that I did not know what 'beige and coral' looked like. The hotel lobby was full of people that evening and it was an adventure to find her. I was only 8 hrs in the USA and I was lost already.
Anne was a guiding person in many ways since that day.
May she rest in peace in Heaven.
