Reading this story today about the violent attack on Liberace’s devoted friend Anna Nateece broke my heart. Please read this story about her in the Las Vegas Sun from just six months ago.
Now vow that for a woman so talented and giving that the tragedy below not be what defines her legacy.
Remembering attack, Anna Nateece says, ‘I didn’t know whether I was alive or dead’ – Read this story by Sun reporter John Katsilometes
I immediately called Lee’s friend Steve Garey of Palm Springs California to inform him of the unfortunate news. Steve explained that Anna was among the most devoted, sincere, dedicated friends of Liberace’s life. He believes Anna will make a full recovery because in heaven Lee is pulling for her.
Steve would like us all to join with him in prayer that Anna will recover from this horrific attack and that the terrible person who did this to her is brought to justice. He will personally come to Las Vegas and sit in the trial to ensure that a monster who would hurt someone so loving and sincere who brought great comfort to his best friend pays for what he has done.
The family has not asked the public for support in any way. Steve is contacting Anna and her family to extend any help that he can to them through those who are still around who know first hand the loving devoted friend she was to Lee who would never have wanted her to suffer in this senseless way.
I received the great news from Rod Russell that he and Wes Winters have both spoken to Anna Nateece and she is doing well on her path to recovery.
Crime Stoppers (702) 385-5555 in Las Vegas is seeking information leading to the arrest of the person who did this to her.
I am tremendously disappointed that after all of the work Anna has done on behalf of the Liberace foundation no mention is made of this tragedy nor any well wishes from any of its social media outlets to help bring her attacker to justice. This is not following through on preserving Lee’s legacy. If Lee were alive today he would be putting funds toward ensuring that Anna is comfortable and a special fund set up to ensure her attacker is brought to justice!
