Dear Vander Heyden family, Know you are in my thoughts and prayers as you celebrate the life of Anita. I am so grateful to have known her and your family. I will remember the Society of People when we were welcomed with food and hot chocolate after the day of sledding at your parents home! I am sorry I can't be there to give you all a hug as we are now in Arizona for the winter. God's peace be with all of you. Sincerely, Sue

We are so sorry about your mom. She will always have a special place in my heart. I will miss sending her cards and talking to her. She is such a sweet person to hug. I so looked forward to seeing her each year when we came back to WI. But I have many fond and funny memories. Everytime I bake a lemon pie I will think of her. Love and hugs to all of you.
