Mrs. Anderson, John and Rick, My sympathies to you all on the loss of Mr. A. He was a wonderful teacher and all of us at Dry Creek loved him. We appreciated his caring for us and his fairness. He will be missed.

Hello Mercy, I was your former letter carrier, last year and for six years. I was surprised and saddened by Bob's loss. It was so great when you both were at my "going-away" party last year...I have lots of pictures of you and Bob. (We were at Linda and Dave's house.) May God comfort you at this time, Love, Kelley
We were all blessed to have Bob be a part of our lives.
I have vivid memories of times with Bob - high school, skiing, fraternities, visits with his Mom and Dad on Finley Street, and visits with you and Bob at your place near Applegate. A long time ago, but all those memories are good memories.
My heart goes out to you Mercy.

Mercy, my heart goes out to you and your family. Bob was a good man and I enjoyed getting to know you both again since our High School days. I truly enjoyed working with Bob on the Reunion Committee.
Sincerely, Florence Ladeck
I am saddened to hear of Bob's passing. He was a wonderful role model for all of us. I remember him fondly, not only as a teacher but in his many roles at Dry Creek.
I often comment on the quality of the education we received, and I consider "Mr. A" to have been primarily responsible for ensuring our success, not only at Dry Creek but also as we moved into high school and our chosen careers.
The Anderson family must be very proud of the many contributions he made and the many lives that he influenced; his enthusiam for teaching and for students was always evident. Given that I am in the education world myself, I know how difficult it is to inspire students to do their best - Bob managed to do so while also inspiring the other teachers at Dry Creek to do the same.
I certainly appreciate the fact that "Mr. A" remembered me. I'm sure there are many Dry Creek alumni who feel the same way that I do - we were fortunate to have such a terrific teacher and mentor.
Please accept my sympathies and extend my condolences to your family.
All my best,
Dry Creek Class of 1962
My deep simpathy to Mercy and all the Anderson family.
Mr. Anderson was mine (Linda Dexter) and my siblings' teacher at Dry Creek School during the late 1940s/50s. He taught me and many others how to dance and participate in our dances at school. I have so many, many fond memories of him.
