She may have left the void, but she also left us the means to fill it. She had a childlike sense of awe for even the most ordinary of experiences. She could dance without any accompaniment. She instilled in us the wisdom to seek out the excitement on our own terms. I told you to go look for it. It’s in every corner. And locate it we shall.
She would yell “BYE!” as I drove our two sons — her true loves — down the long driveway and street. In fact, I still hear it ringing. I’ll miss you, pal. Said the little family, “I love you…
Even 24’s director and executive producer, Jon Cassar, paid his respects. More times than I can count, my heart has been shattered. Annie’s warm spirit and infectious grin made their way into my life. Seeing her perform, I couldn’t help but be impressed by her abilities.
Annie was more than just a co-worker; she became a friend to me, my family, and everyone on the cast and crew. They, along with the many fans she always made time to speak with, will miss her dearly. Annie, you will be missed; you made an impact, and we are better for it.

“And yet, she gave us the means to do so. She had a childlike sense of awe for even the most ordinary of experiences.
“The absence of music didn’t stop her from dancing. She instilled in us the wisdom to seek out the excitement on our own terms. Take the initiative and locate it. Literally, ‘it’s in every single place. And locate it we shall.
“Our boys were the center of her universe, and she would yell “Bye!” as I drove them down the long driveway and street. In fact, I still hear it ringing. I’ll miss you, pal. “I adore you, my miniature family…”
