RIP Anna Woolf

December 2nd, 2009 at 6:32 pm by David Farrar

Peter Cresswell has made the inevitable but very sad announcement:

, aka Annie Fox, died today at 12:05pm.

As Mary Ann Sures said of Ayn Rand’s death, “now anger has gone out of the world. And it’s the world’s loss, and mine.”

Goodbye, Anna.

Anna’s bravery was quite inspiring. My thoughts go out to those who were closest to her.

    Anna’s strength and courage in the face of the short time she had left and the pain she lived with were a testament to the type of person she was. I only knew her a short time but I came to know a warm and caring person with a great sense of humour and amazing grace. I will miss her greatly.

    Much love to her family and friends.

    My condolences to her loved ones.

    My sympathies also go out to Anna’s friends and family. I am sure she will be terribly missed by all who knew her and loved her.

    Anna lived and faced life, with the inevitability of her illness, in a way that inspires me to live like that regardless.

    It confronts with the realisation that the most precious thing we have, is time. Her blog showed she lived a beautiful time and was just herself in the past year or so, it is just tragic that such circumstances end up being a reminder of how one might really live.

    Who is Anna Wolf ? Perhaps someone can fill us ignorants in.

    While it’s sad she has passed away, who exactly is she?

    All I can find is that she is a share trader, lives in Auckland, and has a blog.
    I’ve never heard of her prior to this topic; should I have?

    Like Neil suggests; “perhaps someone can fill us ignorants in.”
