I just found out through FB that our BeHereNow has passed away.

She apparently had an abdominal cancer that was making her ill but I don't think the doctors were able to find it in time to do anything.

We had spoken on the phone about her cats sometimes, and she and her husband brought one or two of them to my office a few years ago, but we didn't keep in close touch.

"....one of Anne's songs, "Reach the Light", is included on a new CD from MovieScoreMedia. It's on the soundtrack of "Shuffleton's Barbershop" a Hallmark TV movie that was broadcast in June (track #6)."

She was a talented musician and a beautiful woman.

Isn't her husband a DUer, too? I could be wrong about that, and for that reason I do not want to post his DU1-2 name. In any event, I always thought fondly of both BeHereNow.

Peaceful passage, BeHereNow. You made us better as a community.
