  8. Norbert Eugene Anderson was my cousin. He was eight years older than me. I was one of only a couple of girls in this big family of boys. Nearly all of the boys served in the armed forces. We lost our cousin, 2nd Lt. Larry Petett in Vietnam in 1968. Eugene escorted Larry’s body home. An experience he always held close to his heart. Having no siblings and the baby of the family, I adored and idolized all of them for my personal heroes. Although because of health reason, we seldom saw each other in person, we stayed in weekly contact with the phone and internet. Although most of our family has passed, the very few left thank you for your service to Eugene at his funeral. It was a beautiful, simple service. . .just exactly what he would have wanted. I cannot begin to tell you the impression on an old woman’s broken heart you made. What a gift you give to the families you serve. Thank you.

  9. Norbert Eugene Anderson was my cousin. We came from a large family of cousins who were very close. We lost our cousin, 2nd Lt. Larry Petett in Vietnam in 1968. Eugene was given the honor of escorting Larry ‘s body home. I was the youngest and a girl who idolized all these boy cousins. They were my heroes. While Eugene and I did not see each other as often as we would like, we stayed in touch weekly by phone and internet. I want to give my deepest thanks to the beautiful service given to him. It was simple and meaningful. Just exactly what Eugene would have wanted. What a wonderful continuation to serve military families you deliver. Again, thank you so very much.
