Words cannot explain the way you have enlightened me and my family. You will truly be missed by all those who have been blessed by knowing you! My prayers are with my Grandma Thelma,my mom, Dale, and my sister Mandy and her children. I know your hearts are broken; but know you have helped Andy during the most crucial time of his life. We all appreciate the love you gave him when those of us could not be there.

We will always remember you, Andy!
