To the Richiusa Family:
We knew Andy from frequent contact at Grandma Sally's restaurant in Naperville; we are "regulars", and Andy liked to hobnob with the restaurant owners and their guests. He was also well known, and liked, by the restaurant staff. And he always had kind words for us (Mrs. Fancher is wheelchair-bound). We have missed his smile and upbeat demeanor, and we will remember him fondly. May your memories sustain you as ours do.
