  3. The family of Bud and Bev Anderson, Cheryl, Mike, Chris, Kelly and families. says:

    I can imagine that Bill is up in Heaven today giving our dad, Bud Anderson, a hard time about something!
    Dad and Bill shared a lot of good times together. As a pair the orneriness was thick and you never knew who their next victim would be. Anyone at the coffee shop was fair game.
    He was also a very kind and generous man. I remember him walking up the hill at our parents place a day or so after mom had passed away. He brought a tightly wrapped package full of smoked ribs to make sure we had something prepared to eat.
    We send our sincerest thoughts and prayers to Cliff, Teresa, Karon, Sharon, Jack and the rest of the family.
