Friends —

It was a blessing to meet Mrs. Anderson and those of you who were visiting her at Liza’s Place, just 4 days before her passing. What Joy filled her eyes as she sang “Jesus Loves Me” . . . and, what a blessing, to be so prepared for her departure.

May God’s peace and blessings be upon you during this most tender season.

Ever hoping . . .

Always in Jesus,

I can’t begin to express the heartache I feel for your family. Knowing each of you girls has taught me how love and respect keeps a family going. Norma Jean was a beautiful woman filled with love. Both her and your Father raised such wonderful girls. Know that your Mom is looking down on you all feeling love and pride for such a great family. It seems words are really never enough but that’s all most can offer. Again I am extremely sorry for your loss. You will remain in my prayers.
