Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

Oh my goodness. My heart is breaking. That is the last and worst bit of news I was expecting to hear. BeansMama was a true fighter, a hero even. Right till the end she was an inspiration on what it means to keep trying and pushing past the odds. May her soul rest in everlasting peace.
