Remembering Anna Jane....

Dear Laurie and Jenn,


I am a Frederick High School classmate of Anna Jane’s and one of her many admirers.  Her beautiful smile and wonderful laugh and her lovely warmth and genuine welcome (midway through our junior year) to this Class of ’56 newcomer all remain so very dear to me.  Her true enthusiasm over the years each time we met still touches and warms my heart.  She is, was, and will always be utterly lovable.


Having lost my father, brother, husband, and mother all within a few short years of each other, I know well the deep ache the physical absence brings.  I’m also learning the love, and a new kind of closeness, never ends.  I am so honored to join your walk on June 28th from my home in New Hampshire.


With my most respectful affection,



Louise Clendenin Watson
