Laurie, David, Scott & families,
So sorry to hear of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. May you all find strength and comfort in the fondest memories of your loved ones.
It was many, many years ago when my family moved out of Zion and I've often regretted not staying in touch with my old friends. I just wanted to say that my best memories of growing up in Zion definitely include the Anderson family. I hope this finds you all happy, healthy and doing well, aside from this difficult circumstance. Best wishes...
