You don't know me but from what I know about you I'd say you are a person
who loved meeting new people, so add another name to that list - Me,
a new person and a possible friend.
Annie, I hope you know what you have meant to people who love you and
think about you often but also how much you have the admiration of people
you never met.
We all like to think that we shall be remembered and not merely recalled
after leaving this world. But we forget that in order for that to happen
we need to leave behind something worth remembering, worth celebrating.
And you did that. Your life list has travelled the world and inspired
others to live the life they were meant to live, that they dreamed of
living. I know you have done that for me. And I will carry you and your
lesson in my heart not just today but everyday. You will live on because
everywhere people who worked out a life list after reading yours will
take you with them as they go about fulfilling theirs.
Your journey hasnt ended because you are no longer here in person, it
begins everytime someone reads your story and sits down to write their
All my love now and always
P.S : My thoughts and prayers will be with you, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson,
today and for all the days to follow.
