  1. I was shocked to hear of Anne\’s death. A couple of her other freinds noticed the announcement in the Breeze and called me. She was very highly thought of. I just wanted the family to know what a lovely person we thought she was. We attended the same exercise class for approximently 15 years. During that time, on occasion, five or six of us would get together and go to lunch after class. Anne had stopped attending class recntly, but a month or two ago, we both attended a luncheon for a larger group at the Soup Plantation in Torrance. I sat right next to her. She was fine, but her hasband was on cruthes. She was one of my favorite people in that class. We were chummy. I miss her and I\’m so sorry. Another of her freinds, Anne Imrie would also like to extend her condolences.
