    Wow. I just found this obituary going through the Omaha World Herald. So sorry to hear about the family’s loss. I worked with Anders for a couple of summers at UNO Summerworks. He was so supportive and helpful to all of the youth participating in the program. Not to mention very patient with me. Very sorry and sad to hear this news. Prayers, thoughts, and condolences to the Christensen family.
