    Dearest Anne, I thank God for allowing us to have you be a part of our lives. I will always remember you and your love for everyone. You were such an inspiration to me as I was growing up and there were many private conversations that I hold dear. You were missed the moment you went to be with Our Lord. There will never be a day when we do not remember you. I know how much you love your daughter and I have done, and will continue to do, my best to let her know that. There will never be anyone to fill the absence of you, but we are comforted in the fact that you are not in pain any longer. You are so beautiful and when I close my eyes I can see your smile. I love you.

    Anne was an intelligent, thoughtful, talented drama student at UNCA. I remember her strong performance as Varya, the elder sister in "The Cherry Orchard." While a student, she found time to visit the elderly in nursing homes, a quiet service of hers which I found striking.
