We were most fortunate to meet Anne through Democratic politics and we became great friends. We were impressed by Anne's intelligence and dedication. She was one-of-a-kind, and possessed an unparalleled political savvy and droll sense of humor. We will surely miss her and treasure our memories of her - and Gary. Love to their family.

Our deep and sincere condolences to all of Ann's family. She was a very special lady and a good friend. She was a mentor, a confidant and above all a faithful Democrat. She always was up for an adventure and usually wanted to drive! She will be missed.
