  • Dear Anderson Family,

    Last evening I discovered the passing of David from this life into eternal Peace. Deepest sympathy to all as my heart became very saddened at this news. David was a kind and very nice young man. Surely he will be greatly missed by family and friends. David and his family attended the same Church and School as our family. I became better acquainted with David as he did some tile work in my bathroom. Very conscientious, wanting to do a fine job and he did! With deepest sympathy, Marianne Oratorio
