    Dear Anderson family,
    my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your mother; I have many fond memories of her throughout my childhood on the farm, at Ramsey, as well as her friendship with my mother. We enjoyed her company last Christmas, when she visited at my mom’s house. Your mother was also very thoughtful in her kind letters to me when I was stationed overseas. Please know many prayers are being sent your way. God bless and keep you.

    I’m so, so sorry to hear about your loss. Your mom was one of my favorite neighbors ever! I loved her happy ways and cheerful spirit.
    You’re going to be so lonesome~! Do you suppose she and Mom have had coffee yet together?
    We’ll be thinking and praying for you so much this year.
    With love,
    Anita and Jeff
