  1. Condolences to the Andreasen clan. My grandfather was Aaron Yeager who did business with your father Sig, and my sister Nita and I used to play out at your place. Nita lives in assisted living in Denton these days, I am in Fort Worth still up and about. You are a huge family, so you’ll have a lot of burying to do, but your family has made quite an impact. God’s blessings on you.
