My cousin June and I didn't know each other too well in younger years, but we became good friends in the last few years. I am better off having known her. We once took a driving tour around Wymore, where she had once taught school, and saw all the old places she knew. We also took a tour of a number of really old cemeteries, where our ancestors were buried in Nebraaska and Kansas. We were so much alike. Not sure who could out talk the other!!! She was always so cheerful, no matter what. June, I'll surely miss you, and be seeing you before long. May God Bless you and those you've left behind.

I am, I believe, the youngest of the Anderson cousins(age 66). I only met June a few times but enjoyed meeting her. I especially remember aunt Zelma and her "snappy" dressing, and make-up. I was not aware of how musical June was. Neat. Her grandfather Tom Anderson died young, but supposedly played a fiddle. I played drums and keyboard in bands for 30 years. June brought the joy of music to a lot of people. That truely was a gift to all who heard her play.
God bless your family. Our thoughts are with you.

Bonnie & John,
I was very surprised about your mom as I did not know she was dealing with cancer. I have many memories about your mom, she was so laid back and would do anything for anybody. It amazed me how she travelled in her own motor home and learned how to fish. When I think or your mom it brings a smile to my face. I am very sorry for your loss.

I am very sad to hear of Mrs. Randall's passing. She was my second grade teacher at Mtn. View Elementary School. And one of my favorite teachers, still to this day. Even after all of these years she remembered who i was and would always stop to say hello and ask how i have been. She was a wonderful lady with a beautiful soul. My deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.
