Minnie was my great-aunt who I guess I probably never met. My grandfather was Herman Anderson--Speedy's brother. I was hoping to come to the funeral home last night but my daughter just gave birth to our first grandchild. Please accept my deepest sympathy at the loss of your loved one and one of my family members.
