  1. I used to bring my 2 young daughters (back in the 1980’s) when i would visit her son Steve, Anne would keep them entertained and both of my kids LOVED to go visit there !

  2. My memories of Anne… A kind, intelligent, warm and wonderful person. I can remember many evenings in the Office at The Glen when Anne would find a way to get us away from the puzzle on the table and into a discussion about our home work, or what were our reading assignments for the summer, She was a great and wonderful influence in my life.. She will be greatly missed.
