We would not have our beautiful home if it wasn't for Andy's natural ability and gift of being the great carpenter that he was, he will be greatly missed by family and friends. Although he was a man of few words you knew that Andy was always willing and able to lend a hand if needed.
Even though Andy's passing has left an extremely painful void in your life, take comfort in knowing that he is now pain free and enjoying a beautiful life on the other side surrounded by everything he enjoyed in life while on earth. May your family find peace and comfort in time.
