I think this is a one year anniversary. I worked for the Teacher Education Directorate, Ministry of Education, Kabul in 2012. I didn't meet Anne personally, although we worked there at the same time. I couldn't get to Kandahar because of the danger, but reviewed their teacher education data. Anne's efforts, hard work, heart made a valuable difference for Afghans, our country, and humankind. She is the best, she is eternal. She gives me strength for my work.

I worked at the Ministry of Education in Kabul late in 2012, evaluating teacher education programs. Now, I keep her picture near my work desk. I know the needs she met, and the difference she made for Afghans and our country. --Ken Peterson (Tualatin, OR)

My daughter is also working in international development and she has spent and will spend more time in
Afghanistan. I feel your loss and I hope that knowing that others keep you in their thoughts will give you some solace. Our children are trying to bridge a very difficult cultural gap and they need to be acknowledged and remembered for their spirit as well as their effort to help bring peace to our very troubled world.

If we secure ourselves against the storms of this life by grounding our souls in the Words of our God, covering our sorrows within his loving embrace, and trusting his strength will support our weaken hearts,we have nothing to fear.We don't need to understand it all,we just need to hold his hand to find peace. He will guide us through all of life's storms, even this one.
Our deepest heartfelt sympathies to the entire Smedinghoff family.

My husband is currently serving at the Embassy in Kabul; he, along with many of our friends, knew Anne. The Foreign Service is a small community. As a FSO myself (and a PD officer) I may not have known her, but I feel like I did. And I am so very, very sorry for your loss.

I can tell by Anne's smile that she loved life. May the family draw comfort from God. James 4:8
