    Thank you, Andy. I cannot tell you how much you made me feel loved and appreciated for just being myself. You brought laughter, joy, adventure and peace to my life. I struggle to express how much I will cherish every memory of you and I together, every minute was wonderful. Three years was not enough. I love and miss you so very much.

    I am so sorry for your loss. He went too soon. I’m glad he was surrounded by his loving family. The video was a beautiful tribute. My thoughts and prayers to the family.

    Big Andy, what can I say, I have told you many times “You are my hero!!” So much wisdom did I learn from that big beautiful (kinda round too huh lol) head of yours!!! The fondest memories by far are that you always listened with patience and kindness, knowing that sooner or later I would be asking for your opinion or the correct answer to whatever our conversation would be about, but the REAL ANDY showed up when you wasn’t sure what the right answer would be, therefore true to form you went hunting for the answers yourself!!! Your intelligence just blew my mind, but, you NEVER treated me like second class, EVER. You are a very special person, I’ve never met anyone quite like you, your ONE OF A KIND! You will be missed everyday!!! I believe I’m a much better person just to have had the pleasure of your friendship.
