We loved Anne, her friendship...and all her accomplishments....do believe she went after and did all she could for and with so many in her life..(being born on Mother's Day was perfect for Anne's start in St. Augustine )
Anne loved every minute of every day....people and writing about them made Anne's life complete....Weren't we lucky to have seen her in action? Alice and Don Tossi

Dear Seth and family; I was very saddened to hear of Anne's untimely death. She had so much to offer to the world. I worked with your family and her charitable organization while at Anchin. It was a pleasure knowing all of you. I had to retire in 2011 after my stroke. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Sonja Lepkowski

Anne, you were a gift sent from God to touch and bless our lives. You truly knew the meaning of life and loving your neighbors as yourself. I was always mesmerized by your love towards us, your courage, your passions and like you always said "The Sky was the limit". Truly, you were a Unique person. I will never forget you, thanks for founding Agahozo-Shalom and for giving your all and all to the communities. Your reward in Heaven is greater. Rest in Peace. Love you.

I was fortunate to interview Anne in 2001, when she was honored at the DOROT gala for her compassion and dedication to the elderly, the same distinct qualities that led her to successfully found and lead the Agahozo Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda, half a world away from NYC. She was truly a citizen of the world. I deeply admire her philanthropy, which had not a trace of ego in it. I admire how her desire to help others came from a very Jewish perspective, and I am in awe of her focus, intelligence, drive, will and tenacity--the same qualities that underlined her success as a public prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney's office were behind her success in founding a village for orphaned victims of the Rwandan genocide in a country she knew little about, until her passion for good works led her there. Many people express compassion for those less fortunate than they are, but few people act on that compassion, and fewer still are as successful as Anne was in making their good deeds a reflection of their compassionate words. She was smart, savvy, determined, with an unstoppable will, a great love, and concern to make the world a better place than she found it. I feel so sad that she is gone way too young, but she died doing what she loved to do. She had a great passion for riding horses and a great love for animals as well as people. I remember years ago when she broke her back in a fall from a horse. She was in a back brace for months, and after it came off, she went right back to riding and competing. She was unstoppable, and I believe that she will continue to live on in her good deeds, in the Agahozo Shalom Youth Village that she founded, and in the hearts and minds of the many people all over the world whose lives she touched and who will continue to draw inspiration from her example. My heart goes out to her husband, Seth, and to her children--Jason, Jenna, and Jonathan--who lost their mother way too young in their young lives--as well as to her parents, siblings, in-laws, and many relatives. She was indeed a rare and shining example of what humanity can aspire to at its best. I am in awe of her, and I will continue to draw inspiration from her all the days of my life.

I met Anne and Seth almost 20 years ago. I was traveling after the army service and Anne was looking for a Hebrew speaking babysitter for the kids. We spent a year together. During this year i had an amazing opportunity to be a part of the Merrin family. Anne, a generouse, honest, loving person. the only things she cared about is the family, children and Seth and always looked around for the people in need, supporting and actively involved in numerous projects, very small and very big to make this world a better place. I learned from Anne how to love a child, how to take care of your beloved ones, and what is important in life. Anney I miss your voice on the phone: "Hey Tsof, we are in Israel", I miss your tears when talking about all your sons- Jenna, Jase and Yoni and all the thousands all over the world. Something from us died with you. Something from you will live with us. Love from my crying heart. Tsofi

Dear Anne,
Thank you for touching my life and showing me the real meaning of humanity. I saw tangible love in you; your smile, your hugs, your humility and your determination. You will always be my all time role model as a wife, a mother and simply a universe citizen. Thank you for your great work to my country, you were a God sent angel. Your legacy will guide our actions in every way to make you forever live in this beautiful village.
You are now our Ambassador from Heaven, please tell God, to give us more time to emulate you… Love and miss you Anne!

they say you never know what you had till it gone, but the truth is we knew exactly whom we had and we thought we could never lose her till it came, we cried a river, but we are luck to know you, to live and to be loved by an important mother, she was special to me, her kindness, humanity, wisdom, legacy, and beautiful smile stay in my mind, you came as our shelter, mother and an angel sent by God. we will always keep your memory, not only that you dead but also you lived. even a dictionary can not define you, even a poetry can not praise you, even a known writer can not write each good attitude and your uniqueness, even a solder can not compete in your war, even a loyal can not judge what you've done, even a president can not get a better speech on your life. only God knows why. you left early.
I love you mom ANNE HEYMAN.

My mother was one of the most amazing, driven, brilliant, fun-loving, generous, kind, and inspirational people I have ever heard of.
I was so lucky to have known her, to have been related to her, to love her, and to have been loved by her.
My mom was one of my best friends and closest confidants. We didn't keep many secrets and we never lied to each other. She was not only an amazing person but an amazing mother. She was always there for me, from flying to meet me in/pick me up and take me home from Israel when I had mono to going to Colorado for a day to watch TKD nationals, or just taking me out to lunch when she had a rare moment of free time, she was always there.

My mom died doing what she loved. She often described riding horses as something she couldn't live without. After breaking her back, neck, wrist, ankle, and a million other parts, and 4 or so concussions, she got right back up on that horse. Some might call that stupid or stubborn, but it shows a lot about how she lived her life. My mother was brave, strong, tenacious, passionate, and never listened to anyone who told her she couldn't do what she wanted to do.

I live every day of my life to make her proud and I will always continue to do so. I love you, Ims

Dear Hermia and Syd, I learned of Anne's death this morning reading the NYT. Although I never met Anne, I knew of her marriage, her children, her life, her accomplishments and your immense pride in being a part of her life as she matured into the philanthropist she became, from my many visits to your home in Villanova and Gwynnedd over the last 20 years. You showed me your photos and told stories about her life. I feel so sad for you at the loss of such an immensely talented person, and especially your loss of your beloved child. I send my condolences also to Daniel, Lauren and Jason, and Anne's husband and children and extended family.

Our Rabbi and executive director of The JCC in Manhattan, Joy Levitt, came directly from Anne's funeral on Monday, 2/3 to a JCC all staff meeting. She abandoned what she was going to talk about and instead talked about Anne. She told us how Anne changed the world by starting the orphanage in Rwanda. She reflected on how many people must have told Anne that this was a crazy idea, that it couldn't be done. But, she said, Anne was unstoppable. She didn't listen to the naysayers. Joy inspired us to think about ways that she could support us and our ideas so that we too could change the world. I was incredibly moved by the story of Anne. I am sorry that I didn't get to meet her in person but I want her family to know that she has inspired all of us at the JCC to reflect on how we can make a difference. May Anne rest in peace. And may she look down on all of us and be proud that we are in fact carrying on her legacy in the good work that her example has inspired. May her family and friends and the children and people of Rwanda be comforted by the memories of how she lived and cared and believed. God bless.

What a sad but amazingly uplifting service each of you put together to celebrate your mother, your sister, your wife and your friend. While I had always known Anne Heyman to be a force of nature in the context of the Merrin family, Liquidnet and ASYV, it wasn't until yesterday that I learned of the impact she had made on a global scale. She had been saving people her whole life, starting with her brother and ending with the world. How lucky I am to have personally known her. How lucky we all were. I wanted to include this picture of Anne because if you look closely at her feet you can see she is on her tip toes with excitement. It's how I imagine she lived her life and it makes me want to do the same. Rest peacefully Anne.

Dearest Seth, Jason, Jenna and Jonathan,

My heart is breaking for all of you now. Although I have not seen you all in close to 20 years, I have always thought of you since my teaching days at Heschel. I was Jason's teacher in Pre-K as well as Jenna's. They were both some of my favorite students, such loving, creative children, exuberant, full of life and funny...just like their Mom, Anne. Jonathan was only 2 or 3 at the time I taught there. Anne was an incredible person. She was so involved in Heschel and her family. I always admired her tenacity and caring nature. I especially felt close to her and a few other parents. I only now discovered so many things that she accomplished, what a truly remarkable individual. The world was such a better place having her in it and she will live on in our hearts and memories for a very long time to come. May you all find solace and comfort during this tragic time. May Anne rest in peace and may her soul make an aliyah. Forever in my thoughts!!!

Dearest Seth, Jenna, Jason and Jonathan,
My heart is filled with grief for the untimely and tragic passing of Anne. Visionary, humanitarian, imaginative in the deepest fiber of her being – a pioneer as she strove to repair the world. Her work touched the lives of thousands. She was a bright star, illuminating everything she touched. But whatever she was doing, whenever we spoke, first and foremost she shared her pride and love for each of you. I will always treasure her friendship and her unswerving partnership in building a better world for the elderly at DOROT.
Jerry joins me in expressing our deepest condolences to you and the entire Merrin and Heyman families.

I'm so very very sad to hear this tragic news. I knew Anne from my riding days at Overpeck. Often she gave me a lift back to the city. She was kind, funny, smart, and beautiful. I ran into her a few years later at the NJ Horse Show. I've thought of her from time to time and was sorry to have fallen out of touch. I'm thinking of her family at this time and my thoughts are with them at this time.

I knew Anne from when she rode with David Kenner Boley and Penny Kinnally at Overpeck. She was always a genuine individual and was so proud to ride with her horses. They were a part of her and she never took that concept lightly. It was quite refreshing to watch because her horses knew when "mom" was on their back. It's a special connection between horse and rider and Anne always had that with her mounts. She never forgot that it took a village to make a winning team including the trainers, grooms, and fellow boarders who all supported each other. She will be missed greatly but her legacy will continue in all the wonderful work in Rwanda. My sincere condolences to all!

It saddens me. I don't know Anne but she seems to be an extradonary person someone who should have stayed with us a lot longer! My prayers are with your family and friends.

My friend and former student Anne was one of the rare and truly blessed individuals whose personal light touched everyone she met. Anne, and her extraordinary family, will continue to make the world a better place for us all through the practice of their faith and grace. Anne's legacy is one of meticulous care, boundless energy, absolute righteousness,and most importantly...infinite love!
