I never met Mary. Her daughter, Kathy Anderson, trained me to be a police officer- better than one could expect. I know from this that (to me) Sgt. Anderson had one heck of an upbringing. I simply wish to show my respect to the Anderson family and show our love. We, and our prayers, are with you all.

Oh, what a glorious day that will be!!!! Smile when you think of the wonderful times you had and tuck those memories deep inside your heart, where she will live on through you.
