Andy and I worked together at the St. Louis. County Juvenile Court for about 10 years in the 1980’s. Andy was my friend, mentor and confidant. We spent a lot of time together both at work and on our days off. I would not have gone on to the success I had working both in the juvenile court and federal court systems without the guidance Andy provided to me. He was very proud of his family and I fondly remember going to both high school and college games to watch Petra. Andy undoubtedly touched the lives of many people and will be greatly missed. I know Our Lord has a place for him in heaven and he will watch over all of us. God bless you my friend.

My husband, Scott, and I send our love and condolences to Mrs Linda Brown-Jackson and family. We held Andrew in high esteem. He was a refined gentleman and a Christian. He and Scott had a mutual devotion to scouting. Andrew was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He will certainly be missed. May he rest in eternal peace.

Death robs us of our loved ones, but God has placed "memory" as the great comforter. Bask in the memories you shared and may God bless you at this most difficult time, Love abides!
