    I read the news via email while Mark and I were away for a few days, trying to recover from our grandson Brennan’s death. I’m so sorry for the loss of your beloved husband, father and grandfather. My heart goes out to you.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Arvid’s passing. I enjoyed the times sitting and talking with him. I only wish I could have known him better. I know he was a good man, a good husband, father and grandfather, and he will be missed by all who knew him. My deepest condolences to Estelle, Kathy, David, and the rest of the Anderson family. I hope you can take comofort in the fact that, even though Arvid is gone, he will always live on in the hearts and minds of all those who knew him.
