I'm so sorry to hear this. Courtney and the kids, especially baby Myron are in my thoughts. I worked for Andy for a short time in 2013 as his secretary. Though time was short , he was a really fun boss to work for. Andy was a really kind person, always was good to joke around with but clearly took his job seriously. I'll never forget him.

Andrews office was just across the hall from my office for the past seven years, and I am going to greatly miss him popping into my office to say hello and catching up. Andrew was kind and thoughtful and had a big heart. He dearly loved his kids, they brought him joy and he was tireless in his role as a loving father, teacher and provider I'm glad I knew him, and will miss him. Andrew.
