I remember in 1996 when we all(Steven Anderson Sr., Susan Anderson, Sean Anderson, Shelly Blafas(Anderson), Aunt Annette and Uncle George) drove up the mountain. It was just getting colder and colder, but you was prepared, you had jackets for all of us. I will miss you dearly even though we did not spend alot of time together, to me you will always be my Uncle George.
