I first met Andy and his wife Janice about 9 years ago while working as their hairstylist. Over the years I have had the pleasure of being able to visit him in his home, where I was always welcomed with open arms. I've thoroughly enjoyed our time together and have heard many loving stories of family members whom he loved so very much. Andy will always have a special place in my heart and I'm absolutely confident he's in heaven today singing all his favorite church hymns! We'll all miss him dearly and will think of him fondly.
