My sincere condolences to the Neikirk family, Anne was a great friend to me and God Mother to my children Andrew and Sarah Reiman. Wonderful individual with a great lust for life and an outstanding sense of humor. My best memories are times spent with Anne and Carol Piper on the 10th floor of the World Trade Center. May she Rest in Peace as she joins Ed and my Mom in a Heavenly reunion. God Bless You Anne, Until we Meet Again. Love You Always. Molli

Our loving God hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again.​—Job 14:14, 15.

Anne was one of my Mother’s best, closest friends – Mary Ellen Bendtsen and she was a wonderful and gracious lady. She will be very much missed.

Anne and family have filled many places in my life. Her parents and mine were the best of friends almost 100 years ago. Anne, Niota, Mother, and I made several trips together with Anne providing the humor and good times. Mother, Grandpa, and I drove to PA for Anne and Eddie’s wedding. Danny served as ring bearer in our wedding almost 60 years ago. Just yesterday, I was polishing the silver tray her parents gave us as a wedding gift, bringing back all those wonderful memories. What wonderful friends through the generations.
