Default In loving memory Anne McCaffrey

Anne Mccaffrey 1 April 1926 - 21 November 2011


Dear Annie,

I haven't forgotten you and think of you often. It's only two years since we lost you and it still hurts. I miss our conversations and your humour and peculiar laugh as well as your no nonsense way of deciding things if I came up with a question yet again.

For me the 21st of November will be Anne McCaffrey Day!

A coincidence: in a few days we'll be celebrating something: 9 years of MoM and despite the dwindling number of fans in general and regular visitors here this is still a haven for the serious Anne McCaffrey fan. Even though we don't discuss your life and work as we used to, the fact we like it here is something that remains and is done and used in your spirit.

Thanks for all you have given us, material and immaterial.

Hans

What is this? Why are my eyes leaking? Oh, Hans! A lovely tribute to a one of a kind Lady!

I am what you may call a "dwindling member" Hans even though I will always be a serious fan of Anne and her work.

I too could not help but think of Anne and everyone here today of all days, so had to check in. Hope you all are well. xx

well said, Hans

I remember with pleasure the happy times we shared, dear Anne, and will never forget your kindness to a fan who became over the years of our acquaintance, at least in some small way, a friend

Very well said, Hans. I, unfortunately, never got to meet her. All the same, I feel the world is richer for her life and work, and poorer without her.

I never got to meet her either, but I will always love her for what she did for me: get me through many a troubled teenage year!

I will always love Lessa, F'lar, Brekke, F'nor, and all the rest as I visited a wonderful world of hero's and heroene's. Dragons and firelizards. I will always cry at the loving way she let Master Robinton go when it was his time and how we always knew that the People of Pern and her other worlds would always live on in our hearts!

Thank you Anne!!

Thanks for posting this Hans. And to everyone who helps maintain/moderate the site. It is hard to keep up discussions on entertainment topics where there's nothing new coming out, but there's a lot of fine reading here that allows anyone to have a really in depth look to Ms. McCaffrey's work like none other. She was the sweetest lady, as is her family, even more important than her books. And it's wonderful that she's remembered.
