Dear Kathy and family,

We’ll always remember cousin Andy with his quick wit and the kindest of hearts.

There is a great emptiness left by Andy’s passing, but I am certain that the strength of the love that you and your family share for each other will get you through this very difficult time. May that love honor his memory and may you always cherish the time you had together.

Andy’s memory will be forever in our hearts.

With all our love,
Annette and Paul

Always looked forward to seeing Andy at St. Michael. His smile and his humor always made the day sunny, warm, and delightful. My sincere sympathy to Kathy and family.

Aunt Kathy, Andrea, Steve, Brian, and the entire Galante family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Every time I saw Uncle Andy he always somehow made me laugh. When Aunt Kathy and Uncle Andy took me to a lions game when I was a teenager, it was a memory I will cherish forever (even though they lost like they always do). Uncle Andy will be missed greatly and I am lucky to have known him.

So let us now find comfort by wrapping ourselves around the many blessings and loving memories we have shared with Andy
