I have very fond memories of your mother.  She and I were Buddies. Couldn't call us boyfriend and girlfriend, we were friends and enjoyed each others company.  Anne, being Roman Catholic, was not supposed to eat meat on Fridays, so we used to go to Patty's Italian Resturant on Beach Blvd. for Friday night dinner.  We both loved Italian food and she could get something she liked that was meatless and still good tasting,  We ate there so often that the owner started to recognise us as regulars and would bring us a complimentry bottle of wine to have with our dinner.  We loved that because neither one of was 21 and he never asked.

We lost track of each other over the years, but she was one of those friends, one of those people that are in your life for a time, you never forget and always cherish the fond memories of your times together.

I am sorry for your loss and wish I had gotten to see her one more time before she left this planet, but I feel pretty sure i'm going to see her again.

God belss and keep you both,

Anne's old Buddy,

Lynn Lindsay
