    It was with a sad heart that I read Andy’s obituary in the paper today. Please know that my sympathy goes out to each and every one of you. Be comforted in knowing that death is an enemy that will soon be done away with.
    I have very fond memories of the times I spent with Dorothy and Andy and the family.
    I can’t wait to see Andy in Paradise looking young and handsome as I remember him as a child.

    Love always,
