First Introduction – Donna Marie

Dear Kevin, Just a note to say I think of you often and wonder how you’re doing.  I know times are probably still difficult. But I also know that when friends share their memories of Anna that you can feel her presence. When I think of the two of you, the day that comes to mind, was the first time you introduced her to me.  I was standing in the Agape line, the two of you walked up she was holding your fingers … when you said “this is Anna”, she looked up at you with big eyes and a big smile and you exchanged a big smile at her.  I could see the love the two of you had for one another. I could also see how proud the two of you were of each another. That’s my picture that comes to mind when I think of you. Take care … xoxo, Donna Marie.

It’s amazing how two people can be “close yet far apart”, at the same time … through Facebook.  When I first read of Anna’s passing, which I think was just a day or two afterward, I was without words.  I absolutely didn’t know what to say — “My deepest sympathy and sincere condolences”, seemed so small. I visited your page almost daily, looking for the words … but they didn’t come.  It’s very important to me that you know that when the tragedy happened, you were in my heart everyday. Lunch would be nice.

By the way when you introduced Anna to me, I think you told me her middle name …
