Lighten Up with Annie - she's making God Laugh

It was many years ago when I met Annie in ASTD when I was a very serious young man. She encouraged me to lighten up and see the humorous side of life had to offer to me. I always admired her quick wit and generosity of spirit in how she modeled good natured humor. Back in the mid nineties when my Humor University partner, Ann Fry and I were thinking of starting a company based on using Humor In the Workplace and she was the first person that told us to go for it. While other people thought I was a little crazy she was excited for me. She believed we all needed more humor in our lives and that it helped to foster our creative side. Well I now know she's amusing God with her razor sharp wit. That will be something I will miss along with how open, creative, and generous she was with her time and wisdom.
