    Norman and to the Anderson familes 

    Judy and I are truely sorry for the loss of your wife and mother

    When death comes quick the shock is intence but her suffering has ended which is good for her but tough for those who struggle with the outcome

    Strenght in family is the key to grief

    So very sorry to learn this news about my good friend from high school days at Ridgeway, Ia., and the years that followed, from being a part of their wedding to watching our children grow and their devotion when my husband died.  Memories that last forever.  My sincere thoughts and prayers to all.
