台灣前總統 陳水扁

敬愛的Ms. Bernice Anderson : 平安!

驚悉最敬重的台灣之友會Ted Anderson 會長因病辭世,內人與我非常震驚與難過!謹請夫人及家人節哀保重 !

Anderson 會長的離開,是台灣人的重大損失,從此失去一位最了解台灣、最支持台灣的台灣之友!但也確信Anderson 會長生前為台灣之友會所播下的種子,將更開花結果,生生不息!

感謝Anderson 會長與夫人於2000年台灣總統大選期間,共同參與並見證台灣首度政黨輪替的歷史性一刻!

尤其感謝Anderson 會長在我落難時不離不棄,並在2009年9月3日專程到台北看守所探視我,賜我溫暖與勇氣,是我能夠活到今天最大的動力!

台灣中國、一邊一國,是我不變的主張與信仰,也是Anderson 會長給無數台美人最大的期勉。

我們會繼續努力下去!

我與夫人及家人ㄧ樣,永遠以Anderson 會長為傲!請他在天之靈安息!夫人與家人平安健康快樂!

Dear Ms. Bernice Anderson,

I am shocked and saddened upon hearing the passing of your husband, the honorable Mr. Ted Anderson, Former President of Friends of Taiwan. My wife and I wish you and your family well through this most difficult of times.

The loss of president Anderson is a great loss to all Taiwanese. We no longer have a friend who can understand and support Taiwan as much as president Anderson.

However, the seeds he had sown for Friends of Taiwan will germ and blossom, and his legacy will live on for generations to come.

I also want to acknowledge the supports of president Anderson and you during the 2000 Taiwan presidential election. Your contributions helped to bring about the first

transition of power between parties in Taiwan's modern history.

Most of all, I want to express my gratitude toward president Anderson for his relentless support when I was falsely imprisoned and abandoned by most people. He visited me

on September 3, 2009 in Taipei prison. He had given me warmth and strength, one of the most instrumental reasons that I have survived to this day.

"Taiwan and China as two independent countries across Taiwan Strait" is my lifelong political belief, which was also a belief shared by president Anderson with many
Taiwanese Americans.

We will continue to fight for this belief.

My wife, I, and my family will always be proud of president Anderson. May God rest his soul in peace. We also wish you and your family health and happiness.

Former President of Taiwan, Chen Shui-Bian
