If you have been coming to the Sandcastle during the last 20 years, you have probably had the pleasure of having Anne Keegan check you in on more than one occasion. She was the fun little lady with the accent. Many have tried to guess where that accent was from. Just to set the record straight, she was from New Zealand. We know many of you have grown close to Anne, so we wanted to let you know she was recently diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer and passed away on July 17 2011. For being such a small lady she has been a big part of our lives. Anne spent her last days in Salem with her family so they could care for her. All five of her children had the oppurtunity to see and spend time with her. They have traveled from Sisters, New York, Maui, and New Zealand. No one could love their mother more than they do, but we come in a close second. Because so many of you have been inquiring about Anne and her family we wanted to set up this page with her families permission in case you wanted to share some of your memories of Anne. All of your memories and comments will be given to the family to be put in a keepsake book.
