One Condolence for “CHARLOTTE ANNE LONSON”

  1. Dawn Knowles says:

    Don and family,
    I am so sorry I missed Anne’s memorial service.
    My first recollection of Anne was her outstanding performance in the Sound of Music. She was enchanting. Later we spent many years together in the Westminster choir. Alzheimer’s is a dreadful illness that
    slowly steels our loved ones. I know you will treasure the many memories of happy times together.
    Thinking of you with sympathy, Dawn Knowles
