It has been a long time since the 70's back in Verden. Mrs. Anthony, I remember you fondly from 6th grade. The impression you left on me was how much you love your family. Please know my heart is with you and yours during this difficult time. May the peace of God that passes all understanding rest upon your family. May the love and support of friends beat and far bring comfort to you.
