I met Mr. Anderson back when I was in 9th grade. I have to admit, I know he was skeptical of me, but being his daughter's best friend thru out high school, he accepted me and my quirks and treated me as another daughter. I think Beth and I tested his waters and he surely tested mine...for the good... Looking up his obituary, I saw his face for the first time in years. His face shows a few more years and a few more gray hairs, but the man I remember shines in that smile I so dearly loved.

God bless to you all in this time and I hope you all have comfort knowing he is now with his savior, no longer in pain, and not to worry....i know he's looking down on all of you making sure things are in order and will continue to watch over you daily. God bless.

Dick and Elzie have a special place in my heart. They are a team working to serve the Lord. Separated in physical being but together always in God, the work continues so our prayers hold strong for strength as we march on.
I light a candle in the honor of my brother in Christ for Dick has reflected the Lord's loving light.

We have you all in our prayers. We have so many fond memories of Dick, he was loved by many and will be missed by many but what could be better than to be welcomed home by Our Father. May you all find comfort in that.
