I’m an old friend of Anne’s. We went to highschool together and we now live in Hilton Head. The email address I have for Anne is no longer in service. I’ve been trying to contact her with news of my sister and just to be brought up to date with your lives. Please ask Anne to contact me. I can be reached at:

Thanks and kind regards,
