created memory in Anne Shirley Toth
Happy Birthday, Annie. I often think of you and what a beautiful person you were. Since today is your birthday, I thought I'd say "Hi, Annie. Love ya!"
I was blessed enough to have been brought over to the Toth household while visiting with Matt while he was in Niagara...I cannot remember what year it was but I am guessing it was 1997 or 8....we were boating, more appropriately Matt was trying to teach me how to wake-board if I'm not mistaken! LOL Epic fail on my part but I tried! Matt brought me back to the house and where his mother brought out food and welcomed me like I was family. What a warm and amazing soul I was introduced to. I will never forget what she told me that day or how she tried to guide me in the confusion I shared with her.
Now I was thinking about her so much in the last little while and I'm not entirely sure why, but when I came onto the internet to search, this is where I was brought and my heart is sad. Just one moment with a person can change your outlook immeasurably and she most definitely changed mine. Thank-you Anne...I am so blessed to have met you!

... we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.
Not a day goes by when I don't think about you and your twinkling eyes and special laugh. I am so greatful for having know you and my only regret is not spending MORE time with you.
Two years and it feels like you were just here, helping cook the thanksgiving feast, wrapping gifts for the holidays...and going for a drive to see the lights on the falls or in the park.
We miss you mom - and we miss charlie too.
your birthday is fast approaching. You would have been turning 69 this year, and I've no doubt that we would have been planning a picnic at Dufferin Islands - or a trip to Lily Dale for the day.
Calvin and I will take Jake the dog and head to the 'park' overlooking the river - where your ashes rest now. We'll take the ball launcher for the baby border collie and think about you and charlie.

We first met when I took a tarot card class with her, I was invited to join her at her Friday night radio shows after which we would dine at the East Indian Restaurant sharing many stories and laughs. When I came to her for my Astrology Chart she literally saved my life by telling me I was going to be an Non-Traditional Art Teacher and if I didn't find a way to release the earthquake of old, buried emotions I would end up having a nervous breakdown or worse.
I thought she was wrong about the Art thing, I knew in my heart that she was right about the buried emotions. The proof of this was coming out in bouts of skin rashes that couldn't be explained by the medical profession.
I was drawn to a little town on Lake Huron called Southampton... I picked up a cheap pad of paper /a set of markers... went back to my room to prove her wrong. Ever since I have been both doing and teaching what has become Art from the Heart Adventures. It was like I opened my heart and it all came gushing out . WOW!
When I went back to see Anne again, while I was waiting in the little cabin where she did her readings, I set up close to 70 of the heartworks I had done in just 6 short months and she was truly appreciative of the powerful presentation. As usual she was humble about having been the catalyst for this life saving change saying I had a choice to make and made it. She was proud of me though and that meant a lot.
I mention how Anne saved my life at most of my workshops and talks and thank her for being so frank about the change I needed to make. In April of this year I went back to Southampton to teach the techniques I was guided to develop in the same room years ago and once more told the participants how a wonderful pyschic friend made this all possible.
Until we meet again, Dear ANNE, whereever that might be.
Love & Light, Carolyn Shannon
I can hardly believe the time has passed
unlike so much of my new life
getting through this year
couldn't be rushed
the ebb and flow of each season
just rolled through my life
each with it's own set of distinctive memories
i visited the grave site this week
I know that you aren't there
but it was comforting to see your name on the monument next to gram
it was a sunny, brisk day in the mountains
a day that you would have loved to walk charlie by the river nearby
In my mind - the two of you are together - walking in the sunshine
