Uncle Andy,

I have always loved your sarcastic & witty comments, which I will miss. You became the leader of the pack after Grandpa passed and you did an outstanding job. I am proud to of been your niece and I know you’re hanging out with Grandpa, Blanca, Mary Jane & many other wonderful people you came across in your lifetime. Until we meet again...

Sylvia -

Julio and I send our condolences to you and the family, and just know Andy will be missed. I mean who else will get as excited as he did when I'd make menudo?

May he rest in peace and be free of any pain or discomfort.

Many hugs, and we are here if you need anything.

Linda -
