God Speed my dear Andrew.. I love you.

  • Jarrod and Family,
    I’m sorry to hear of Andy’s passing, we had numerous talks and hardly ever disagreed. He was there when my own father passed and I am greatful for that. I will remember our history chats and his love of old coins. He will always hold a spot in the memories that Damien has of him. I’m here to help if I’m able if you guys need it.

I think GOD broke the mold when you where born . Thanks for being such a great friend . You will be truly missed my brother . R.I.P.

  • Ann and Jim –
    We are so very sorry to hear of Andy’s death. We have known Andy for many years. We always had a cheerful conversation when he would bring our winter wood. Always wanting to please, asking if it was cut okay, etc. As I’ve learned, memories are wonderful!
    Heartfelt hugs to both of you!!

  • Ann, Jim, and Jennifer,
    I am deeply saddened by the news of Andy’s passing. We began our journey together at Epworth Methodist Church when we were very young. I specifically remember when the two of us were confirmed together by ourselves after Easter. That was a nerve racking experience. We continued through school together graduating from Marion Harding in 1978. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Hugs to all!

  • Dear Ann, Jim and Jenny:
    Please know that I am thinking of you all during this difficult time. I remember Andy as that little kid next door wanting to join in while Jenny and I played! Hugs to you and your family…
