Condolence & Memory Journal


My wife Caroline and send our Blessings out to the Family of John Anderson

Please know that my husband & I are saddened with the loss of a fine, fine man. We supported John's run in 1980- we even contributed to retire his campaign debt! We related well to his example of thoughtful, inclusive leadership. As a woman, I appreciated his statement that 'choice' was between 'a woman and her God'. Most of my family left the GOP that year, but would consider returning if there were people like Mr. Anderson in the mix. He made me proud to be a Republican, proud to be an American, and set an example of behavior that could certainly serve for most of our elected officials today. May the love of family, friends and our Almighty Lord ease your loss. Fondly, Dusty
