Andy was one of a kind. Always had a smile on his face no matter what. Gave the best advice ever. Thank you Andy for always for being there for us Moore's girl's when we lost both of our parents. You was the best friend we could ask for. So now it's our turn to watch over your family. You will be miss but not forgotten. Love you always

I have so so many memories of Mr. T. The one that really stands out is of me trying to trim my mom hedges. Andy would be across the street watching me and saying alright Ree, Doll which was my mom going to be mad at you lol, because I would really mess them up. As soon as my mom get home, he would tell her Ree done messed the hedges up again. Andy will definitely be missed. He was the smartest man I knew, he would always fix our lawnmowers and gave the best advice ever. Tell my mom I’m heaven I’m still messing up her hedges
