It was such a joy to meet Ingar for the first time and be 'surprised' to find that he was the twin brother of our Mission Mother, Ingrid Sorensen! No wonder he looked familiar!Carolyn, we send our love and best wishes to you and the family. Your Dad was one of the noble ones and we felt it an honor to get to know him. I would have like to have attended the services but only became aware of his passing this evening as I was reviewing the obituaries.Paa Gensyn kaere venner.Brent and Josette Nay

Grandpa Andersen was such a neat man. I will always remember is kindness and gentleness. One of my fondest memories was seeing him with "Serious Sam" in Oregon. He was so playful and cute with him. I feel very grateful that I could see him in the hospital. I loved hearing the stories of his travels. He is loved and will be greatly missed.My thought and prayers are with your family. I pray that you will be able to find peace and comfort during this time. Love,Dirk, Juli and Kynli Talbot
