"I was lucky enough to acquire a cabin on Twitchell Lake while Anne was still there. Since we also had German Shepherds we became good friends. She even performed a memorial service for one of our dogs who died of old age at our camp and is buried there. We would often arrive at camp and find flowers or other mementos on Kira's grave and know that Anne had stopped by. Along with a few of her other close friends, I had the honor and pleasure of bringing her back to Twitchell Lake and her cabin one last time, for a week, the summer before she died. The ravages of dementia compromised her abilities to function fully so she stayed at my camp but we spent every day at her cabin and the camps of her dear long-time friends. After she died, we held a wonderful memorial service for her at the public landing of Twitchell Lake, with her last dog Krispy Kreme, that hundreds of people attended. We brought her ashes back to her camp in an Adirondack pack basket and buried her near her cabin and dog's graves at an unmarked site that only a handful of us know about. Thought her admirers might find comfort in knowing that she will remain forever in the place that so inspired and influenced her life. John Deasy, 13 Twitchell Lake"

"Gorgeous photo. Age wears well. And what a remarkable woman. I live independently as well by choice, and having family such as Anne is reaffirming of what we already know.
Thanks Gal. Rest in peace"

"I have just read the original WOODSWOMAN and wondered where Anne is now - up with the Angels - I am sad. Thanks Anne for giving us your beauty."

"I just read "Woodswoman" for the second time. I loved it. It brought me some peace in this world. Ann was a special human."

"Her books spoke truth to my soul as I read them.
May her soul rest in sweet peace."
