My Condolences to mrs Hazel Anderson & also to the immediate family.
Back in 1981 when I married my Husband Sam we had a small reception at the house. I remember that was the first time I met my late father in law James L Anderson Sr. What a remarkable man he was & so knowledgeable. One to have others follow in his footsteps thru the years. A man to look up too n honor in so many ways. A caring man who worked hard n took care of his family.. Special memories i was told thru the years that everyone was treated the same (his children) They had equal time Recently while attending the life celebration for his late daughter Anna O Hunt.. Mr James L Anderson Sr. Sang a beautiful song with no music it left me with goose bumps He really sang his heart out that day now i am sure he is singing up in heaven just like he did that day.. That is what i remember those memories just stick in your mind... RIP Mr. James L Anderson we love you now & always Jan & Sam & heather & kelly Hill

Our condolences to Ms. Hazel and Mr. Jim's family. Jim was a wonderful man and we are blessed to have known him. He was a dear friend who I enjoyed visiting and helping with a few projects now and then. We had some great laughs together. He had a heart of gold and a love for our Lord who I'm sure he's getting to know on a personal level right this minute.

We'll be praying for Hazel and Jim's family. I wish we could be there to celebrate his life, but unfortunately we will still be away.
