On behalf of the Salinas family we would like to extend our most sincerest condolences to Andy's family and loved ones. Andrew was a great, kind and caring man and I will be forever grateful to him for all he did for my father, Herman, there towards the end. I also really appreciated him looking out for my mom these last couple of months after my father's passing. Now, rest easy "Sito" as you and "Mo" can now hang out with the rest of the old La Isla/golfing buddies crew that preceded you guys in eternal life. You will be sorely missed!
