    Dear family, I remember many, many times when our family would spend time with my aunt and uncle (Esther and Tom Fee) and Christine would join us. What a kindly and precious woman she was! My prayers for you in your grief, as you mourn the loss of a wonderful woman. Blessings in Christ, Sharon (Daughter of Ken and Christine Anderson)

    My deepest sympathy go out to your family during this time of sorrow. The death of a love one is very difficult. Therefore, I’d like to share scripture that may help. Please, read John 6:40, 44.
