Tuesday, the Anderson family, the National Park Service and this community memorialized Mount Rainier National Park Ranger Margaret Anderson. She was doing her job, pursuing her mission – a mission which often involves risk – when her life was taken from her.

The response to the call by personnel from the park service, the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, the FBI and the Tacoma Police Department showed tremendous skill, courage and compassion. The community can be proud of the talent, the heart and the close working relationship shown by deputies, police officers and federal law enforcement personnel.

We honor Anderson for her strength and sense of duty and obligation. We continue to keep her family, her colleagues and her friends in our thoughts and prayers.

(Pastor is the Pierce County sheriff.)
