THANK YOU: I don’t know where to begin to show our thanks and appreciation for the outpouring of love and support for us as we had to deal with Bob’s death. He struggled these last years, and we want to thank each of you who tried to help ease that struggle, as you kept us in your prayers and offered to help us in so many ways. I want to thank some wonderful people who helped us get through some harvests and helped us prepare for our equipment auction. We thank all of you who came to the house, the visitation, or the funeral. Your kind words and fun stories were appreciated very much. A special thank you to Chris Johnson of the Hartquist Funeral Home, as well as the other workers, who helped make this process easier. Thank you to Pastor Berg for his message, to Marijane for the organ music, and to the ladies of the church who served lunch. The thoughts and prayers of everyone helped give us strength. We cherish all of the years we were a part of the Tyler area and all of the friendships we made. We ask God to bless each of you. The Andersen Family-Patty, Krista, Keith, Wendy and Kyle, Kevin and Samantha, and Maddox
