I have too many memorable moments to share about Andy. Instead, I write about Andy's caliber. Hopefully all can reminisce about times when he displayed these attributes.

Andy was one of a kind: fun, accepting and a joy to know. He was helpful, compassionate, humorous, witty, and charming. He loved deeply, cherished, and made great effort to protect his parents, family, friends, students and employees. He was thoughtful and sweet; a beautiful soul, talented in many areas.

Andy endeavored to live righteously and to the fullest, being a good friend and listening ear who encouraged and supported others' goals; offering comfort to friends through faith in God and sharing his expertise when needed.

Have I said he was tons of fun and the coolest dude ever? A man like Andy can never be forgotten. A man both loyal and grateful. Definitely one worthy to be loved and remembered. The mistakes he made, he regretted, but always strove to be a better son, companion and friend. I can truly say that who he was has been helpful and important to my life. I am very lucky and grateful to have had him as a friend.

To help with our deep sorrow, I share advice from Andy himself and a Bible scripture:

“The fix is quite simple and versatile to many situations. ... The fundamental premise is to do something for somebody else. Something unexpected and not something you would normally have to do at some time. Ironically ... the less this costs you financially, the more effective it is on you. In other words if the task you choose to do is to purchase something..., then the effect on you will be diminished. The way this works ... is that the boost in brain chemicals stimulated from increased self-esteem, sense of accomplishment, etc ... will "shock" your system out of this rut." - AHB

"I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world." John 16:33 NLT
