    I am so sorry for your loss. Anna was a very special person. When I knew her she was always so quick witted and her laugh was wonderful. I will miss her. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God Bless all of you in your time of sorrow. Lee

    The world is a much smaller place without Anna. We will miss her but have memories to last a lifetime. Even though we don't always see our friends. We never forget our real friends. My prayers are with the family especially Riva and Matt. Love to you both. Rena

    It is an extraordinary blessing of life to have had such an incredible person pass through our lives. Anna will always be our touchstone for strength, bravery and humor. Until we can walk the beach with her at sunrise again we will miss her deeply and always.
