Anne Marie McSweeney

(Anne Marie in Blue)

Lost a friend today.
Anne Marie McSweeney was a very active cyclist with a zest for life.
In April I was her roommate at PAC TOUR Desert Camp and was looking forward to many more adventures with her.

Sometimes you just connect with people - I knew Anne Marie through my cycling club for several years and saw her go through some tough times including a very bad break up. I also suffered a very bad breakup and she was there for me - knowing what I was going through.

Anne Marie was just now starting a new relationship with another friend of of mine and the hopes all of us had for that relationship were so bright. They both deserved the Happiness that was going to come their way and now it won't.

I'm going to miss her and will think of her often.
Something quirky about Anne Marie - she had full on conversations in her sleep that you were able to follow if you listened. I listened and laughed about this goofy habit.

My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and boyfriend. We will all miss you.
