I knew Andy from Charleston Road, he was always so nice and kind. I am so sorry for your loss because he was a special person. He seemed to live his life on his terms, and was very happy. May we all do the same. You are in my prayers.

Dear Kathryn,
Unfortunately we haven't met, but I am a cousin (Potts) of Andy's and I want you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you the gifts of faith and hope during this difficult transition so that someday you will be reunited in paradise.

I am so very saddened to hear of your loss. I only knew Andy for a short time.I meet him last year when he sat his Bar B Q stand up on Charlestown Rd. I would stop for Bar B Q 2 or 3 times a week. I referred so many people to him. My family and friends just loved it!I Andy and I always had great conversation. He was such a kind young man with so many dreams and goals. We were so glad to see one another when he opened back up this year.. Oh my I can't imagine how he will be missed by so many. GOD bless his whole family and friends!! Andy's roadside friends Doris and Frank Smith
