Remembering Anna Jane....

Dear Laurie and Jenn,


Thank you both for remembering and reaching out to me, by way of Mary Ann Wagner.  You were both youngsters when you left Westtown to live in Nantucket.  But I do remember Anna Jane as a teacher at Westtown before she and Warren were married.  I loved her spirited enthusiasm for life.  As many of us know, cancer is a killer.  I am just so sorry that Anna Jane had to suffer through such an illness.


I will join you in spirit on the 28th of June by walking in Kendal’s central garden.  Many days I have walked outside the main building with a staff member and enjoyed the meadow which Bert and Dotsy can see from their cottage.


Thanks for telling me of your plans for honoring your mother.


With much love,



Alice Bacon Long
