  1. I am very sorry for your loss. Mr. Anderson was such a gentle person and I will miss seeing him and his smile at First Church on Sundays.

  2. Brad ,
    We’ve been great friends for more than half a century..can you believe that? Your Dad was the Last of the Mohegans.. His death signifies the final passing of an Era. , a generation. What I will remember most about your dad, is the relationship he had with your mother.; probably as close to a perfect marriage as two people can have. In many ways they defined each other.. Glad we had a chance to talk today. Please give my condolences to Roy and Nancy.

  3. Evie and I appreciate your telling us of your father’s death. George and Anne were dear friends with whom we stayed in touch over the years. We have a fond memory of staying in their home overnight once when enroute to visit my brother in Florida. George and Anne were gracious and caring hosts. Usually, it was by our Christmas letters that we exchanged the various happenings in our lives. Having them as members of the parish we served in Rockford was a boon. No doubt, it is true for you as it is with us—this having known many folk, now passed from sight, who like summer fruit continue to aromatize our memories with the fragrance of all which once bound us together.

  4. On behalf of my father, Gerald Anderson of Minneapolis, and my family I offer our sincere condolences for your loss. I know George and Gerald kept up over the years, and my father spoke gently and kindly of their kinship. Blessings to all.
