We are all sorry to hear of Andy's passing. He was a dear man and we have many fond memories of him going back to when he lived with us for a while when he was attending Franklin College and up to when we were able to share our home again with him as he started a new job a couple of years ago. His conversations were always lively and engaging. It is sad that he wasn't able to keep up the valiant fight he waged for the sake of his health for so long. He will be missed I am sure by his friends and family alike.

I grew up in Greenwood, but moved to Houston in 1993. Much of the time through high school, I spent a lot of time with Brent. To this day, he was one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. I saw flashes of the usual sorts of things young people have – temper, impatience, or frustration - but I have no memories of Brent being anything other than kind to me. While a young person, I didn’t appreciate how rare this is.
I’m sorry to hear of Brent’s passing and offer my condolences to his family and friends. I have an amazing number of good memories with Brent and Brad at their house. I don’t know how many nights I spent there, but it seems like hundreds.
