    My heart shattered when I learned of my friend’s passing… Days later I still feel numb. Val and family, I am so very sorry for your loss. So very sorry. May you find the strength to press into and closer to God, allowing His arms to wrap around you and give you peace. Know that my prayers are with you, as is my love.

    I will always love and dearly miss my friend…

    I was shocked and saddened to hear of Anne’s passing. I was fortunate to be her coworker and privileged to be her friend. During our 10 years as officemates at Alverno we got up to all kinds of mischief and ours was considered the ‘fun’ office. I remember Anne using her decorating flair to add beauty and charm to our surroundings, her playing lots of Celtic CDs, her smarts, her panache, her generosity, and her quick wit. Anne was one one-of-a-kind and made the world a more interesting place to be. I treasure the time we spent together and the memories we made; I will never forget her. Anne’s family was her heart. Val, Morgan, and Molly, please accept my and Pete’s sincere condolences. (Photo from an Alverno employee awards dinner. Anne dressed up as the revamped version of Sandy from “Grease.” And she pulled it off with panache!)
