Andy is my brother-in-law and I met him when he was nine. Even then, his heart was huge and loving. I've learned a lot from him about courage, humour and love. He was both a proud Canadian and a proud American. He was an unbelievable uncle to our kids - the Andy stories are endless and hilarious (and sometimes pushed boundaries!) He loved his many dogs (including ours) and his current dog, Bentley, provided both practical and emotional support in a wonderful way. Given the distances, I'm so happy that he had family with him at the end. My husband Doug and I will miss him forever.

When my dear friend Andy passed away yesterday, it left so many of us broken-hearted but so thankful to have been a part of his journey. A joyful soul with a heart of gold. Always there with a sympathetic ear, or a gentle nudge when needed. Fun-loving and mischievous, always up for a good prank! The things we did together! Through the profound sadness, what keeps making me grin through my tears and warms my heart is I can hear his laugh, a full-throated belly laugh, the genuine expression of someone who always grabbed life with both hands, held on tight, and enjoyed the ride. And because all of us will always have so many “Andy stories” to tell, you will never be forgotten. Rest in peace old friend, you certainly have earned it. To his family, my prayers for peace and comfort.

Eleven years ago, my brother Andy was diagnosed with the first of what would become several terminal illnesses and told he had five years to live ... at most. Whether it was his courage, sheer will, or just a strong stubborn streak that carried him through, I'll never know, but his fight for life was remarkable and inspiring. His life was forever changed by countless medical procedures, doctors appointments, and unimaginable pain, but despite all of it he remained positive and hopeful to the very end. He taught me many things over the years, but the most important lessons were to dream big and make every day count.

Rest in peace, Andy. Thank you for being my brother. You were loved, and you will be missed by many.

My dear Uncle Andy,

My head is swirling with memories of crazy activities that you tirelessly brought up to Canada each summer to challenge Mike and I as we grew up. You always knew exactly how far we could push the boundaries to have fun and not get into (too much) trouble.

Your love was infectious and your support unwavering. You never complained once despite some of the challenges you faced. You are braver and stronger than I and an example of strength and courage that I will forever hold close to my heart.

Rest assured we will keep your spirit alive and well at the cottage. I will remember your smiling face, jokes that could make us cry with laughter and your undying love for Canada — where the Jamiesons call home.

May you sleep well now.

I love you,
Heather
