This will be the last post on Live From The Pit. Anne (CheckerBeads) passed away peacefully in her sleep last night. She was an extremely gifted artist and crafter and we're blessed to have been gifted and surrounded by her creations but more importantly, to have countless wonderful memories with her. Despite a long and difficult battle with lupus, she retained her generosity and witty sense of humor until the end. She was very intelligent, a great debater, an avid reader, and a patient, compassionate listener. Though she had no children of her own, she doted on and was a favorite to her nieces, nephews, and godchildren. It has been an honor to know her in this life and for us to call her a family member and dear friend. We will miss her immensely. We love you, Anne.
