Default AnnaJW passed away

Hi all,

I found out this evening that Anna passed away in June. I do not know the cause, but she was recently divorced and was living alone at the time.

She hadn't been active on the org in a couple years, but she was a regular here prior to that.

Oh wow, I wondered why she stopped posting but just figured life got in the way.

Rest in peace Anna

I feel so bad. I wish we could let her family know she had people out here that had fun and enjoyed her presence with us. This is so sad!! Now there are 3 that we feel a void where they were.

That's very sad. I don't remember her, but this has not been a good year for members.
RIP, Anna~
