I only know Anne from what has been reported following her tragic death. What a wonderful young women, what a terrible loss for us all. May she rest in peace, and may her family find comfort in the knowledge that she was a very fine individual who will be missed by so many who knew her, and remembered by so many who were not privileged to know her personally.

Our heartfelt sympathies go out to you as you face the loss of your beautiful daughter. As former fellow diplomats and friends of one who worked alongside her in her previous post, we are mourning her passing along with you. It's obvious you all did an amazing job raising her to have the drive and ambition to serve our country in such a sacrificial way, and we thank you for your service, too. May God bless you during this difficult time.

As the father of a FSO working in a dangerous assignment, I am experiencing as my nightmare your reality. Your daughter could be my own daughter or son, imbued with a sense of adventure matched with a desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others whom she has never met.

I extend to you my deepest sympathies to you as I would a family member. I hope your tears are soon dried by the pride of what she accomplished so quickly and the inspiration that she is to all of us.

Mr. and Mrs. Smedinghoff and family,
To say there are truly no words at the great sadness I feel upon hearing of Anne's untimely passing, is more than an understatement. When I read the news last evening I kept saying "no this can't be". I can only imagine how these sentiments are resounding even more in each of you.
I have so many wonderful memories of Anne and her lovely, quiet presence in my classroom and her great spirit which flowed throughout Fenwick. I have never forgotten her.
I will offer Mass for her and for each of you. You hold a very particular place in my heart, and from that place I entreat our Loving Father to give you the peace, healing and consolation that only He is able to offer you now and for years to come.
My love and prayers,
Fr. Jordan Kelly, O.P.
