Anne was a special person. Her joyful and kind spirit began as a child and never wavered, even in difficult times. Her big heart made everyone she touched a better person.

I will miss you, dear cousin, but I’m comforted that you’re finally free of the illness you battled for so long.

Peter, Amber, Christine and Larry: I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ll be thinking of you this week as you say goodbye to this brave woman.

Peter and Amber,

I can not even express my sorrow when learning the loss of Anne. You all have been such a huge part of my life, from being a teenager to an adult. I will never forget her humor, her compassion and her strength to meet each battle head on. You both are in my prayers.

Anne was a very special person to everyone she knew. She wasn’t only a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend ~ she was also my Godmother. I will forever remember all the times we spent together, especially when I was a kid. I loved spending the night at her and Peter’s house, because she would always let me choose sooo many teddy bears to sleep with =)
I love you Anne, and I know that you are in a better place now, happy and healthy with your family….until we meet again I love you.
Love your Goddaughter,

With deepest sympathy


Condolence from Phyllis (Rebecca’s mom / from SAFE) on December 27th, 2009 12:38 pm

As I read all these beautiful expressions of sympathy, I realized how much of an impact Ann had on all who knew her. I liked her the first time we met. Her smile was wonderful and she smiled alot! Ann was not one to complain…even though she struggled daily. Peter, I’m glad you shared w/me about your strong faith in the Bible…it will sustain you. I pray you’ll be strong for Amber and that Amber will grow up to be just like her mom…she already has her beautiful smile!
