I was sorry to hear of Mr. Anderson's passing. He was such a pleasant presence on Tullibee Drive as long as I can remember. I will miss seeing him riding his bike through the neighborhood, waving at his neighbors. RIP.

RIP old friend. You are now free of pain. I will always remember your bear hug on Christmas Eve. Fly high. I hope you get a hole in one. Until we meet again.
