I am so sorry to hear of Andy's passing. I can say, unequivocally, that he was one of the finest men I have ever known. I met Andy in 1967. I was a senior in High School. In January of 1968 he offered me a job at the parts department of Al Sager Volkswagen. Many great adventures followed. He mentored me like I was his son. To me he was a Father figure. I learned all about VW parts and how to deal with the shop techs and the public. I was eventually hired by VWGOA in 1972. I worked for 40yrs with them until retirement. I will be forever grateful for his kindness. My thoughts and prayers to the Rampino family.

Daddy, I'm jealous that you are there with all our family and friends. I miss talking to you every day but we'll all be together again....hopefully soon. Give Mother a hug and kiss for me....and Granny too. And mother having taught me to see the good in every situation...you are there with her, you have no more pain, your legs work just fine and there's no more dizzy spells. No sadness in heaven so its all good. I love you, daddy. I'll be there when God says "now".
