    Andy will be forever missed. His daughter’s loved him very much and he adored his girls whole heartedly. Andy was not only my partner, he was funny, charming and the life of the party. His presence was well known by any and everyone when he walked into a room. We all grieve differently but there will never be anyone in our lives like Andy. Prayers are needed for his family and friends, whom he loved and cherished both near and far. May God have you and watch over us Andy….always

    I still cannot believe you are gone. I don’t think I will ever accept it. You will always be part of our family and there will always be a piece missing until the day we are all together again. Save a place for me on the sofa so that we can have one of.our ID channel marathons when I get there. We love you so much Andy. I know my momma was happy to see you. God knows you were her favorite. Give her a kiss for me please.

    Remembering Andy, and knowing him for a very short time but it felt as though he was part of the family and was very much welcome. He and my son hit it off as best friends and Andy always saying encouraging words to him, He will always be remembered and like he said often (Jesus Loves You ). 🙏🏽🌹🌻

    Andy was a sweet soul. His spirit was sparkly and you could see it in his eyes when he was next to you, Sharon. He loved you so very much because you’re a jewel in the Nile just as he was. Sometimes the sweetest souls and bright spirits are the ones most needed for their calling above the earthly realm and Andy has transcended from the weight of Earth’s oppression and is flying free to fulfill his ultimate purpose. Like a dandelion seed in the wind he is a beautiful and weightless now watching over you and his 3 girls.
