A fond memory I have of my cousin Andrew is when my family would visit aunt Velia and my cousins and Andrew would be sitting in the living room playing his tuba. He was probably in the 6th grade. And eating sweet bread with my cousins. Those were the good ole days!

Rest In Peace, Andrew!

Andy was the sweetest guy. I have known him since elementary school. He always had an easy smile for everyone. His personality and brains got him elected to the position of president of our high school band. When neither of us had significant others in our senior year, he was kind enough to invite me to be his date to the prom. He and Ted Geier were inseparable. You will be missed. Til we meet again.

Dear Marji,
I am so very sorry to hear of your husband's passing. I never had the pleasure of meeting Andrew, but I can see in his picture what a sweet and happy person he was. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved husband, and you are in my thoughts and prayers. My sincere condolences to you and your family. I'm sending a big hug your way - with much love attached, Kappy
