To the Andrew's Family,

So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. We will always cherish the good times we shared together. Your mom and dad were great people and always welcomed us with our three children whenever we showed up at their door. I remember the special occasions. Birthdays, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, yes, and the many meals we shared together.

Mr. Andrews will be missed by his family and many friends he met throughout the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with
you during this difficult time.

May God bless you,
Bernice & Gary Clarke

My grandfather was a great many things to a great many people. When you spoke to him you would never hear him speak of a legacy or what he may leave behind when he left, little did he know he would leave behind more than he could’ve imagined.

To some he was a dependable well oiled machine you could count on to get a job done. To others he was a kind soft-spoken man who would do anything in his power to help anyone in need. To an indescribable number of us he was a father, grandfather, great grandfather, and even a great great grandfather. He lived through things that many now could only imagine, and through them all shared endless love and respect for all he called family.

I have a great many memories with my grandfather. He was a great source of strength whenever I’ve needed it, and I could depend on him through anything and so could my children. Raising a child with special needs is a unique challenge, raising two is a straight up adventure. Pop stayed up late many nights and got up on early mornings when hospital trips were involved for myself and my children. Later in life I did my best to return the favour, extending a helping hand wherever I could to show this man who means so much to us how much that he is loved.

Now that he is gone, I hope his legacy lives on in my children. That they can always remember to help others without hesitation, give love without requirements and live every moment to the fullest of their abilities. He will be unimaginably missed every day for years to come, but I know the lessons he’s given me will live on for generations to come. That is his legacy.

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18

Losing the patriarch of our family is an emotional blow. When Nan passed I asked pop how he was feeling. He said, "I miss her, but I know I will see her again, in her prime and even better than I remeber her. I know it'll be okay because I know God has her." And then he shared this verse with me.

Now I share it with my family and extended loved ones. Pop is standing at the right hand of Jesus, with Nan where he belongs.

It's hard because he is not here, but it is easier when we remember where he went.

We're praying for our family!

So sorry to hear of your father's passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers. God bless.

I, Pearl, remember him quite well ...such a lovely man. One thing I will never forget is his kindness . ...the first time I , and a couple other girls, crossed the ferry in PAB , we were a little leery of driving onto the ferry, and your dad drove the car on board for us.
We were so happy that he was there.
Memories last forever. May yours help you through the sad days ahead.
