To the Anderson Family:
It's never too late to say I am sorry of your loss. God never make mistakes. Thank you for Tims' service of his country that he served so well. He will always be missed but his kindness and love will live forever in our hearts. Be at peace knowing that absence from the body is presence with Christ.

To the Anderson Family,
Please accept my sincere condolences. Although there is nothing that I could put into words to ease this painful moment I do pray that the Lord's blessing, strength and love may shine upon all of you and provide you the illumination and the will to carry on as I'm sure CPT Anderson would have wanted it. Although I never met him personally, anyone wearing this uniform I consider my brother and a loss to the Army Family. May God bless you Sir and may he bless those you have left temporarily behind. We shall form up once again in the presence of the Almighty Sir.

God bless and All The Way Sir!

To the entire Anderson Family,
I never actually got the chance to meet you all but I definitely heard much about you. Tim was a great friend, Platoon Leader, and confidant. I can still remember sitting out back just having casual conversations with him. He will definitely be missed but not forgotten. My prayers are with you and your family. I apologize for not being able to make it there to express my condolences in person due to another deployment. Again my prayers are with you and your family. To a great friend that will never be forgotten...

To the Anderson Family, my condolences to all of you in the lost of your beloved and my friend CPT Tim Anderson, I served with Tim in Afghanistan, we worked hand in hand. We would talk and if he had a problem, he would come over and we would talk about the situation, even though he were strong in his point of view, he would still listen. I thank God for allowing me to embrace the company of CPT Timothy Shaun Anderson before he pluck the flower from his garden. I leave with you these memorable words: Earth has no sorrows that Heaven can not healed. I will never forget the conversations that he confided in me, but will let you know, that He LOVED, his family and would sacrifice his last so that they can have. St John 14: 1-2. One day we shall all meet in that great DAY!!!! Hallelujah, To God be the Glory for the things he has done.
