From Barbara Westbrook, Indian Lake, NY

I first met Anne at Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek, NY; Our Town Theater Group (OTTG) was rehearsing for its production of "Post Mortem." We were both involved in this endeavor. I found a true friend . She became an important influence on my love of theater...always encouraging me that I could indeed do what I love. I also met Dave at this time. Spent many happy times at Blue Mt. Lake with the 2 of them and our other dear friend Robin Jay. Anne directed me in "The Importance of Being Earnest" staged reading by the OTTG at Tannery Pond ...encouraged me to audition for the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts Shakespeare in the Park production of "The Merry Wives of Windsor"...and was co acting with me in Gem Radio Theater's production of "Horrors You Can Hear "....when she passed at the hospital. We were shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of our lively Anne. I am so sorry I did not get to tell you goodbye. I think you know I loved you as much as any friend could. And I miss you terribly. It gives me comfort we shared the same faith, so I know I will see you again. Don't stay away from Blue, Dave...we will remember her together. 
Much much love ....Barb. your Miss Prism
