wow! I just wonder how the time has passed, 2 years exactly from my last entry and looks like I didnt keep up on my end of "Keeping in touch better" as promised!! Sorry to everyone for that!!! I'v been talking to Granmpa A in my head & out loud sometimes this whole time!! I should of checked to see if this was still open! I still feel at odds writing to Grampa when only everyone else will be reading it!!I think he hears be better when I just talk to him!!! Im funny that way, I suppose!! I miss Grampa soooo much!! I read over what I wrote before and it sums it up!! As I share more fun & cherished times I had with Grampa & others to my kids I think I even miss him more!! I still have his phone number in my phone! I just can't delete it! I bet you all know what I mean. I do want to keep in touch better with everyone! I miss all my Uncles, Aunts and cousins too!!! I have pictures for everyone. Please email, text or call me! I miss and love you all! 3607429413

When the phone rings on Sundays, I always think of you. "Karen Kay!", you would say when I answered... "Hi there, Pop!" I would reply.
You'll forever be in my heart, Dad.
I miss you.

from you over my lifetime! I pray every

to a better place, to be free of pain,
an to be with Jesus. Dad you are so
missed by all. Stacey & Mike always
liked to bring the kids up for a visit.
You are so missed as Grampa A.& Great-
Grampa A.! Destenee, Anastacia, Kellen,
an now Kenzee, born April 12,2011, will
be told of how their G.G.A. loved them
all. I have my photo of you, with a
bobcat that I look at everyday and smile.I say,"that's my dad!"
Saying good by on the ferry was so
difficult, so permanent! Just know
I will never forget you.
Thank you for being my daddy!

Dad, I can't believe it's been 2 years now. I'm glad I have pictures to remind me of you...Ken and I have moved that same year and are enjoying life. Our time here really is so short.It's comforting to know you are no longer in pain but in a better place.I love you, Helen

Dad, It's been two years already and not a day goes by that I don't think of you. What you left us has been such a big help in so many ways to so many. Tom has questioned your love for him and I reassured him that you did. He believes me. He loves you and I tell him that you knew it. He really appreciates that he was remembered by you in the way that you requested.
I miss your morning phone call ,"I'm still kicking". I miss putting your groceries away on my way home & washing your dishes. You always apologized for taking up so much of my time and I would tell you, "your my POP and you need me".
One of the things I miss the most is sitting with you and listening to you talk about our family history and your experiences. My biggest regret is not having recorded your stories.
Dianna misses you very much too. She enjoyed buying you presents for all the occasions. I bought her favorite car for her thanks to you.
In case no-one else gets a chance to write again, I will say for all of us, we miss you and thank you for being our dad, grampa, & great-grampa.
Well Dad, this will be my final sign off, Good bye, We Love and miss You, you will forever be remembered Roy & Dianna

Dad, We missed you on Saturday when we had a birthday party for Mom. Life is so fragile and short, I feel sorry for people who can't enjoy it. You would have loved to see all the kids, grandkids and great-grandkids that are a part of you and Mom. I'm sure you feel it and are smiling.Love,Helen

Great Grandpa. I've felt the need to visit you again. Letting you go into Puget sound on the 15th was the hardest thing I've ever done,but it was your wish. Whenever I'm in doubt I think of you. I'm so proud to be your great grand-daughter. & an Anderson. I love you, forever and always.

Pop, We fullfilled your wish last weekend on May 15th, 2010. I know you would have approved. Tom couldn't come due to his illness but I know he loved you and would have come if he had been able. All the rest of us kids were there, mom too. Grand kids and great grandkids. Fred also joined us. John has some news for you!
All of us met at our house afterward. We talked, cried, laughed, looked at pictures, had good food, & your favorite; Dianna's patented potatoe salad.
I sure miss you Dad, we all do. I am still waiting for the phone to ring and hear you say, " I'm still kicking ". I miss our talks when I would stop by.
You gave me knowlege when I was young that developed into a lifelong skill and career that enabled me to support and raise my own family. When I thanked you for that you said, " I guess it just runs in the family". Right again ! Pop !
Saturday, May 15th 2010 It was a great day ! Your son, Roy

My Dearest Brothers,Sisters and many other family members,
I want to say how much I feel for all of you in loosing our Dad,
Grampa A, Great Grampa A., Uncle Kayo, Andy and Sid. I know
everyone will miss him, his simple smile and silly laugh! He had
a way of making things seem ok. He would tell me "oh well,it will
be alright." and things seemed to work out ok.I will miss that!
I Love all of you! I don't see many of you often but my heart is
always with all of you. If anyone wants to call me its ok,209-742-5479.
Please say a prayer with me on the 15th,as I can't come to wash-
ington to be with you! Dad would understand that Responsabilities
come first. I talked to him on the 11th of April, He was getting real
tired of being old and disabled! Yet he was happy and always thinking
of others and how they were getting along. I trust that our Lord is
comforting him now and his pain is gone. We will all be fine Dad,
just missing you! Please take care everyone, enjoy life and love each
other.You never know what life has in store for us.
Much love to all. All my thoughts and prayers to you and brother Tom.
Terry Stephens,
