To Sis Rosie and family, I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Deacon Anderson. Deac. Was a man who loved and believed God, as well as a man who loved his family. Deac. Was a kind hearted man, humble, sweet spirited and a man with a beautiful smile... A man who was full of Joy! Sis Rosie and family, God is faithful... He will comfort, keep and strengthen each one of you during this season. Much Love and Prayer, Stephanie Russell-Dillard.

To my Toledo FamBam, I send my love, prayers and condolences to you all through this difficult time. I wish I could be there to celebrate Dads life. From the moment I met Dad he was very welcoming not only to me, but my children as well. I will hold forever in my heart going to the river to fish with the family. Dad out back cleaning and frying fish. Bbq. Ba-ghetti (spaghetti) and how country he would always tell me I am. Lol. Dad has been nothing short nor less than a blessing to my family and I am eternally grateful to have met such a kind Spirit that obviously lead as a true Patriarch because it shows through the children how you can live and show love the way Christ loves the church. I will definitely remember being at choir rehearsal with everyone. ESP my dear departed Tina Bean and her angelic voice. I know Tina, Dad, Donny and all the others that transitioned from this earthly exists are all rejoicing with our Heavenly Father. As the word says in Ecclesiasties 3, to everything there is a season. A time to be born. And a time to die. But we know that as believers we are resurrected through Christ. Be assured knowing that when Dad crosses those pearly gates, God said WELL DONE THT GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT! Now Dad is watching over is all and everyone’s angels whose lives he touched. And we know that is countless! I love you all. Me and my family are praying for peace that passes all understanding during your time of bereavement.
~Love always,
Sheikinah, ChèAnna, Dynasty, Zion, Rhema & Kenzie.
