    candle 1My heart aches to find this. Anne was very dear to me and after I moved to Florida I missed her very much. We kept in touch for a long time but she stopped contacting me about 5 or 6 years ago. I tried to contact her but she was upset with me and wouldn’t take my calls. I am saddened to find that she has passed. I will always cherish her friendship.

    My sympathy to Anne’s family. I was honored to be her doll seamstress for a few years, and she introduced me to the wonderful world of doll making. She was one of a kind.
