    Although we may not have gotten a chance to meet, we have gotten to know your granddaughter who, brings light and joy to all those around her. If she is any reflection of you, you must have been a beacon of compassion to all those you encountered. May you rest in peace. Thinking of your entire family and sending love.

    Bro Anderson was a dear friend of mine. I’d see him nearly every morning before daylight praying at the church. As I’d walk by he’d point at me and say I love you brother and I’m praying for you. I’m sure he wouldn’t come back if he had the chance but I will surely miss him. I’m praying for sis Anderson and family while they deal with this great loss
