Somewhere in the middle of Argentina

Five in the World, One in Heaven

I am saddened to say that at 10:30 today Anne passed away. It was a relief to see her free of the suffering she has been going through over the last 2 years but my heart and being is split in two as she goes on to a better place. I will write a much…
