My thoughts and prayers are with the Anderson family.  I worked with Palace at the Big South Fork N.R.R.A. and he was always courteous, friendly and a great friend.  Precious memories I have of him.  He spoke of his children and seemed so happy.  Palace had a special smile and was kind to everyone.  He will be greatly missed.
