Hi  Synova, 

Once again I want to commend you for all of the long hours and hard work you put into the upmost captivating articles that have now helped solve the long 52 years of fighting for answers on the unsolved murders of my little brother Ronnie Anderson and my dad Lt. Dan Anderson.  Had it not been for your extensive investigation and wonderful articles the people who have come forward would have never done so. Thanks for all you do in helping the families of Missing/Murdered. It’s true hard working and caring people like you that make a difference. Love and appreciate you so much.

I am so fortunate to have met Synova Cantrell over three years ago. She is a wonderful writer. She has written a great blog about my missing/murdered daughter, Michelle “Angie” Yarnell. She writes with respect and integrity for all in the many blogs and books she’s written. She is also a great speaker, and a true humanitarian, volunteering, many times, for my non profit organization, Missouri Missing.We, with Missouri Missing, think the world of her, and appreciate all she has done for us.
