    Anne was an amazing woman with the purest soul. She touched the souls of everyone she met. The earth lost love the day she died. David if you read this please mail me.

    I am stunned and terribly saddened to hear of Anne’s death, She was as graceful and creative a person as I have met. My heart goes out to John, David, Antonia and the rest of her wonderful family.
    It has been more than 20 years since I profiled Anne in a NY Times article and my memory of her from that time is still fresh in my mind – her generosity, enthusiasm, independent spirit. The world has lost a very good soul.
