    My heartfelt condolences to Anne’s family. I could not find the funeral home this morning – should have used my GPS. I worked with Anne in the Hartford Public Schools and knew her from the East Granby Public Library. Sorry to miss the service this AM. We will miss Anne!

    My sincere condolences to Anne’s family. I worked with her for many years at John C. Clark, Jr. Elementary School. She leaves wonderfully indelible memories to the children, parents and staff to whom she was ever so dedicated.
