Anna was such a bright light. She was so proud to have become a published author in her 90's. I'm so sorry we've lost her; she'll be sorely missed. She was a real gem!

Dr Mr Head;

Julia Wendt Nixon alerted me to your mother's passing. I do not think I ever met your mother, but she must have been special as she brought you into this world. I have lost both of my parents and my brother John, all of whom you knew. I send my deepest condolences and prayers to you and all of your family!! I echo Julia's thoughts as well. I will always thank you for your guidance. You were one of the most influential teachers in my life. Again, my many thanks to you and my condolences to all of your family!
