Two months later dearest Anna.

The gaping hole you have left behind is becoming more obvious as time goes by.

But....you were tired. You had to go. Xx

My dearest Anna, you are not forgotten my loving friend, nor you will ever be. As long as life and memory last, your soul will live in me. Your loving smile, you gentle face, no one can fill your vacant place. You're forever in my heart, until we meet again

This reminds me so much of you dear Anna:

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."

Thankful and grateful to have spent time here on this earth with your brilliant and passionate soul.

Thinking of you xxx

I've written and re-written so many words but my mind was fogged up to put feelings into words.
I may not be a person to have known you as well as all these other people, but I still felt I needed to write a few words about you.
You were but an inspiration to anyone who had the opportunity to get to know you. You were an advocate for your daughter whom you loved so dearly.
Your smile would brighten the room and make anyone eager to see you even if merely for a while. For this, I am grateful you crossed my path.

One month today without you... We are missing you more every day. Fly high my beautiful angel ❤️

One month today Anna. Sharing a quote from one of our favorite books.

“There was no danger in taking her for granted. She was unique: there was something abnormal about her, and it was that abnormal something that made her magnetic.”
― Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth

Missing you today and always xxx

You left us one month ago, today.

Yes...you shall be forever missed.

When Great Trees Fall by Maya Angelou

When great trees fall,
rocks on distant hills shudder,
lions hunker down
in tall grasses,
and even elephants
lumber after safety.

When great trees fall
in forests,
small things recoil into silence,
their senses
eroded beyond fear.

When great souls die,
the air around us becomes
light, rare, sterile.
We breathe, briefly.
Our eyes, briefly,
see with
a hurtful clarity.
Our memory, suddenly sharpened,
examines,
gnaws on kind words
unsaid,
promised walks
never taken.

Great souls die and
our reality, bound to
them, takes leave of us.
Our souls,
dependent upon their
nurture,
now shrink, wizened.
Our minds, formed
and informed by their
radiance,
 fall away.
We are not so much maddened
as reduced to the unutterable ignorance
 of
dark, cold
caves.

And when great souls die,
after a period peace blooms,
slowly and always
irregularly. Spaces fill
with a kind of
soothing electric vibration.
Our senses, restored, never
to be the same, whisper to us.
They existed. They existed.
We can be. Be and be
better. For they existed.

 This is for you my friend... You are dearly missed Anna XXX

Anna...this is for you...

'All the good you have accomplished will continue in the lives of the people you have touched. It will make a difference to someone, somewhere, sometime, and your achievements will be carried on. Everything is connected like a chain that cannot be broken.'

Dear beautiful Anna,
It is really hard to believe you are no longer with us. You were such a vibrant person with lots of energy and enthisiasm. You were of great inspiration for me and I am forever thankful for your friendship.
I will always remember you dear Anna.
May you now rest in peace x

Dear friend, even though we had not met in some time, you were still a very treasured friend to me. One of those who make an impact, one who you form a special connection with. I still remember seeing you in your work elevator a few years ago and running in to hug you both of us screaming with surprise. You will always be remembered as a positive, open-minded, kind, friendly, energetic and caring friend. We spoke about everything and your words formed a footprint in my heart. Until we meet again dear friend. Looking forward to hugging you again at the gates of heaven.

My Dear friend Anna. It was a great honor to have known you during your life time. You were such a loving person and helping everyone with out ever asking anything in return. Your great smile always put more smiles on everyone's faces. Whoever I meet speaks so highly of you. I am proud to have been part of your life and of how you bravely fought till the last moment with great support from your husband Alex. You will be badly missed. Rest in Peace.

ciao Principessa❤️❤️❤️

Anna was one of my best friends. She will be sorely missed. She was an example of fortitude, honesty and empathy towards others. She was an avid reader. It was a pleasure to discuss various subjects over an Americano. She fought with great determination for two whole years against a terrible ordeal. Her husband Alex was a constant support during her travail. He most certainly was an exemplary husband and companion. Anna is an inspiration to us all. You will be forever in our hearts.

Hi Anna. You were a pure example of what a friend should be like. Deeply missed by all. Keep on giving the good energy from above to Alex and Alexandra. We always called him the champion.Alexandra is such a beautiful child both inside and out. Miss our conversations. Fly high my dear friend.

I'm so proud of you Anna, my friend, you fought so very hard. No one can ever question how hard. You loved and lived so fiercely. We had our 2nd surgeries together and I remember seeing you from across the waiting room at the MRI centre in Queens Square and I thought to myself what a beautiful person, never knowing we would stay in touch two years on. The way you were with Alexandra, it warmed my soul. The love you shared with Alex, what a team! I knew somehow I would speak to you and we would be friends. I am so thankful to the universe for you, for your advice, for your life lessons, for you, always you. Even though we met only a handful of times passing in the halls of UCL, your smile lit up the space you were in. You have stayed a part of my life for the last two years. You will always be a part of my life. Love you Anna

Anna, you made every room you walked into light up, every face you met smile and every heart you came across open wide. You are the gift that never ever stops giving. 

Thank you dear friend for all the fun, trust, kindness and curiosity. I will miss you dearly. 

This is for you:

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.” - Rumi

Rest In Peace, Anna Xxx

Dear Anna — you are truly missed.

Shared by Romualda Vella on March 5, 2021
I ‘ve been knowing Anna since 1997. We met at fencing. She was very good at epee and even a national champion. We traveled together for competitions, also spent hours at the beach together, cafes’ and night outs. Basically, we hung  with each other during our single life. I also remember when she started working at the MTA , and she was so keen about her new job. Also remember clearly how excited she was when she dated a very handsome guy ‘ her husband Alex’ she was over the moon. Then years and years passed and somehow we lost touch... however, quite recently met her at her office and I believe that was my last time we met and spoke till I got the news that Anna is sick. I managed to reach her  out as I wanted to hear it from her and  unfortunately it was true. I was speechless,  but she was so positive that never thought it would have been the end for her.  I’m so pleased to hear that she was surrounded by good friends and her husband Alex seemed to have been with her literally through thick and thin. Anna is for sure in a happy place and watching all over you. 
We miss you Anna. Till I see you  again. Xxx

Ciao ANNA, quanto ci siamo divertiti con Baraba... ed il vino versato sopra Alex...
sei una persona che non dimenticheremo mai...una a cui non era possibile non volere bene...❤️❤️

The Hourglass

Shared by Charlene Aquilina on March 3, 2021
Few people really understand the art of the gift.  Anna was surely one of these people.  The last gift she gave me was an hourglass, a device used to measure the passage of time.  I was eight months pregnant at time (August 2018).  We had lunch and we discussed the purpose and history of this device. We spoke about time, how we have so much to do and not enough time in which to do everything. 

Who would have thought that few months later from this conversation brain cancer would invade you and eventually take you away, long before your time.  Thank you Anna for your love, support and all the great gifts you gave me.  Forever grateful for you.
