Default Please tell me Anna is OK and the Ya-Ya rumor is wrong.

There is a horrible story that Anna has succumbed to stomach cancer. Please tell me this is not true.

This is so heartbreaking. I've been down all day.

Tracie Long confirmed it on her message board.

May Anna rest in peace. I hope she knew how many lives she touched.

Anna is a guest in my home almost every single day. She will never be forgotten by me.

Unfortunately it is. :( My understanding is that Tracie Long has written a tribute to her at her website. Nancy Tucker and Susan Harris has also commented on this, but I'm not sure where.

She is already missed greatly!

I am sad to say that it is in fact true. She passed away on November 23rd. Tracie has made a post on her forum about it: [url]www.tracielongfitness.com[/url], just go to the "forum" link.

This really is devastating news. She was one remarkable lady. I owe so much to her.

Anna died on Monday from stomach cancer. I will miss my mentor as Miss Anna helped me and many others on their fitness journey.
