    Weird to think that less than a month ago she was sitting across the table having a cup of tea. Very sad - she was a good sort.

    Good on you Anna. You'll be missed.

    Will there be a celebration of Anna's life? I'd like to be there. Give us notice - weekend preferable.

    I can recommend steroids for CNS problems - such as Anna's tumour, and the lumbar disc prolapse that laid me low three years ago. So glad that these wonderful drugs gave Anna several months of meaningful life, and afforded me relief from agonising pain.

  13. Drink to Annie Fox!

    Regards to all her friends and family and let the Auckland bloggers give her a good send off tomorrow night for bloggers drinks.

    Let us be glad her pain has passed so we can now all share the load of her passing.

    My thoughts will be with you all. :)

  15. I can see the words written there, and it's not that it wasn't expected, but it is still hard to believe. She did so well for so long. Best wishes to you and Carol, and the other friends and family she has left behind.

  16. My heartfelt condolences to you Peter & Carol, and of course to Maria. Sad sad news indeed. The end whilst a long time coming seems so sudden. I will remember Anna as the bright & bubbly gal she was, even to the end, for her courageousness & fighting spirit, someone who possessed spunk, rationality and a kind heart - a rare and treasured mix. She will be missed by many. I am out of the country & will pay my respects on my return.

  20. Anna's sense of life - and love of it - is reflected by all those who have left all the wonderful and touching blog comments after she left us. Her funeral today will no doubt reflect this and although I am overseas and unable to attend, I know that she will be surrounded by her dear friends and family who have been by her side and to whom she has provided so much inspiration.

    Good bye Anna.
