    Everson, Wa.Sending our love and sympathies to the whole Anderson family. Being the eldest daughter of Aurel (Frenchie) this is very hard, but at the same time being a blessing, atleast now all of the siblings and both loving parents are now together. Tears a coming down I just wish I could be there to hug you all. The Lord is with all of us, maybe one day we shall all meet again.
    God Bless

    Goddard KansasWe will really miss Aunt Rose, she was such a kind person. We were so glad we got to see her at My moms funeral (her sister Jean) Living out of state we did not get to see her near enough.

    My sincere condolences to the family of Rose Anderson. She truly made a great impression on many young people at Nativity school, especially me. She was so sweet and pleasant then, and each time I had the good fortune to see her when I came back to Fargo. She always had a beautiful greeting and a big hug for me. She made me feel special each time I saw her. I’ve thought of her often, and know she is at peace. I feel so very fortunate to have know her. She was a very special lady.
