Please accept my real sympathy on your tremendous loss. Anna Mary was a gem, and looking at the video, I see she still looked like a very young woman, and had a full life.I see lots of shared memories in the video.

. Anna Mary and I went to grade school and high school together. We lived in the same area, she at the lower end and I at the top end of Prospect. I visited her when the family moved to a new house on Leila street,
I talked with Anna Mary at the last HS Reunion she attended, I think it was 2013.
In grade school she entertained everyone at some event; she tap danced, I remember the song, "Peggy O'Neil". She had one of the prettiest outfit in about 5th grade, a red plaid two piece dress. Another classmate liked it so much she went to Penn Traffic and bought the same one.
Anna Mary was so serious most of the time, but definitely enjoyed a good laugh...her smile never changed!
She brought her cousin Ronnie.V to several events, I think she was so pleased to introduce him to a bunch of giggly girls who were just starting to notice the other gender. We each had a baby at the same time, I think it was my third, which would have been 1961.
I hope I haven't bored you in my ramblings I did not want the opportunity to pass to tell you I do feel your loss. she was a dear friend and it would have been a bonus to have lived close to her as adults.
