I just learned of your mom’s passing today. You have my sincere sympathy. I have such fond memories growing up two houses down from you, like backyard wiffleball games, raising chameleons, sledding at Crestview, and doing magic to name a few. Your mom was always kind and welcoming. I remember her flair for decorating and fashion. Through her faith in Christ, she now has a heavenly home. I’m sorry I missed the visitation. It would’ve been nice to catch up a bit. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Terry, I read in the paper that you lost your mom. I wanted to tell you and your brother Dan that you have my sympathy. My middle daughter was born on April 5th as well, so I will think of your mother on that date. I lost my mother 2 years ago so I know how you feel. Both of our mothers lived long and happy lives. Remember all of your good memories. I enjoyed sitting in front of you in high school. Please tell Dan that I will be keeping both of you in my prayers. Sincerely, Alice Yost Anderson
