I always new that she was praying for me for the Peace that I would feel when she did. We are so blessed to have had the privilege to have known such a beautiful woman of God and are keeping her memories in our hearts. We pray for all of her family during this time.

She always made me feel like family and would give me a sweet kiss every time I saw her. Now she is rejoicing with the Lord and her family in Heaven. We will see her again one day because Christ has made a way. You are loved and will be missed by those whose lives you have touched. Rainelle McDonald, October 18, 2011 Mrs. Anderson was a very, very, special LADY. She was a true LADY in every sense of the word. SHE WAS A LOYAL FRIEND AND NEVER SAID ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT ANYONE AND WE COUNTED IT A HONOR TO BE CONSIDERED as One of HER FRIENDS. Love to All of YOU! Glenn & Linda Thurston, October 18, 2011
