It took me a while to digest that this is all happening. It is real and during such a sad time, when we can not be with the ones we love when they are sick, or even pay our respects properly when they pass. Uncle Andy was that Uncle that you could tell anything to and he would keep your secrets. The polar opposite of his brother--MY FATHER Jimmy Scalera. I remember so many times when we were younger and my father would give us the warning to behave when we went to Aunt Mar & Uncle Andy's house, only to get there and Uncle Andy would let us do whatever we wanted. I remember the playhouse out back that my parents wouldn't let us go in because they thought we would fall and get hurt and Uncle Andy and Aunt Maryanne, would distract our parents so we could play and climb all the way to the top. I remember report cards coming in and Uncle Andy would hide everything from Nana Lu and we would go to Lander Avenue to plot how we could get out of getting punished. I remember bringing my kids to the house and they loved Uncle Andy. Sugar, singing and all things I would not let them have. I remember big holiday dinners at the table and the rare moments we would all be together and feeling like a kid again. Our kids would play and feel like they were apart of something much bigger. A chance to relive the "fun" childhood moments. Ugh...I am so sorry that we didn't get together as much when we were older. Life and responsibility took over and well I moved 3 hours away to live in the country and missed our SI bagels, family and tea with the Scalera's. Thank you Uncle Andy, for always saving us from getting in trouble, playing with our kids and for always welcoming us "back home" no matter how long we were away. Rest in Peace. Until we meet again. xoxoxoxo God Bless all of you and may you always keep memories alive from better times.

It has taken me several days to get my thoughts together. Even now, I'm not sure where to begin. You were my boyhood pal (and protector), my running buddy (pre-marriages), my best man and my son's godfather. I guess you were the closest thing I had to an older brother. So many memories, so many stories, so many adventures, so many laughs, and now so much sadness. Although we grew apart over the years, you were often in my thoughts and now forever in my heart. I will always love and remember you, Andy. Until we meet again...

We are heartbroken with the loss of our dear neighbor Andy. My children adored Andy as well as the rest of our family and it will never be the same. But we all have so many great memories and the love and laughter he gave us. Andy is the only person I kiss when I saw him weekly, no handshake would do. I will miss him dearly but we will keep his memory alive with laughter and some tears. Till we meet again Andy when we crack this néw beer Budweiser, it just came out and you need to try it. Love you!!

To my dear Shore House Family,

Words cannot express the loss we are all feeling. I’m so sorry you have all gone through this pain. Andy was unique, caring, loving and just an all around great person who loved deeply. He adored his family ...and it showed, especially Mares...let alone his grandchildren he’d do anything for. Nothing will be the same without Andy. RIP Andrew. You are irreplaceable. We love you dearly! XO!
