Dear Grandma,

We miss you, we love you, and our painful sorrow at this time is contained only because we know that you are at peace. I am sure you are looking back on us in joy, blissful and calm, reunited at least with your true love of five decades, your husband and our Grandpa - John Anderson.

I remember the happiness that you brought me as a small child. We played together a lot when I was just a boy - card games, charades, fishing trips, noodles ramen, and always a smiling face. You always had time for us gandchildren.

We love you very much and we wish you eternal peace, love and joy in heaven above.


The Andersons
Eric, Inessa, Luke, Kristina, Eva, and Isabella
