I'm so glad I got the chance to meet her on several occasions, with the greatest of those being in her own home.

It is fitting that my father is here visiting at the moment, since he introduced me to Anne's writing via Dragonflight at age 12.

My condolences to Alec, Todd, Gigi, and all her grandchildren. Rest in peace Anne.
I am in tears because she gave me such wonderful stories and now I will no longe wait in expatiation for her next book.
Amen to what Cheryl said Rest in peace
