Floyd Andersen- my best friend's dad

Addie – you are my best friend and have been for almost 51 years. (Ever since the first day of first grade when I came home to tell my mom I had a new friend named Addie Mae!) You have been the constant in my life –my safe haven—my sister—my confidant (yes… you have most of my secrets)—and have always been my grounding rod.

When we were little girls, we played at each other's homes and your house rules were different than my house...

I think I deleted part of my message before I submitted. Sharon and Addie we are so sorry for your loss. We can be sure that he is in the very best place of all and that he is at peace. We fondly remember living across the street from your family in Richmond, MO. We lived coming over to play cards! If George could travel that far we would have driven up for the funeral. Our prayers are with both of you and Dorothy .

My name is Karen Knudson Smith and I am the daughter of Ila and Wallace Knudson of Harlan, Iowa. My husband, Jeffrey, and I want to express our sincere sympathy. It must be very difficult to say good-by to a husband of 65 years and we hope that your memories, family, friends and faith will sustain you during this difficult time.

You remain in our thoughts and prayers for comfort.

Floyd was a man who deeply loved his family and his LORD. As my "Uncle in law" he always offered a warm welcome, a smile, and a hug. His quiet grace and kindness will be remembered by all who knew him. As hard as it is to say goodbye, I know you find comfort in his peace and joy in the presence of the LORD. He will be missed!

Dear Addie
So sorry to hear about your dad. May the wonderful memories you have of him help you through this difficult time.

TO THE ANDERSEN FAMILY, MY SYMPATHY FOR YOUR LOSS. Floyd will always be remembered by me as a kind, generous man. He was very kind to me in my early teenage years and I looked up to him and wanted to emulate him. You were blessed to have him as a member of your family.....Sam Walker, Santa Rosa,CA

For all the Floyd's extended family, my sympathy. Floyd was an excellent example for us cousins. He was kind, generous, and lived a life consistent with his religious beliefs. I was blessed to know him during my teen years . He was someone I admired and wished to emulate. Floyd was a blessing! ...Sam Walker, Santa Rosa, CA

Hi Andersen Family.. I am so sorry that Floyd passed away. I know your hearts are heavy with grief. He was a kind and gentle man with sense of fun. He always treated me like his 3rd daughter and welcomed me into your home many many times over my lifetime of knowing you guys. He and Dorothy are my 2nd set of parents and I will miss him. Please know you are in my heart. Love you, Meredith
