I love the story "Anne of Green Gables". I loved my Grandma Pearl Forry so very much she was such a dear friend to me. Kevin when she lived with us she loved you very much. I like looking at the name in print it is a very beautiful looking name. I also like the sound of the name. She is your little gem isn't she.
