She was my Aunty. I can remember how she made me beautiful clothes from the same material she used for hers. Like twins. She and Uncle Stephen made me feel like a princess when they took me with them when I was 12 or so. She had bought a pretty dress for me and fixed my hair and put makeup on me for the first time. I felt like I was floating as I walked down the grand staircase to the dining room. She made me feel good about myself.

I loved Anne! I'd often stop and shop at King & Queen and buy several things. Sometimes she'd ask me to help select things to order for the shoppe. My favorite times were when we'd just sit and talk! Anne's sense of humor and genuine interest in people were 2 of her best qualities.She was fun to spend time with, and I'll smile when I remember Anne.

Anne was truly a remarkable woman who seemed to remain forever young. Bless her soul she will be missed.
