My Wish…
But more than anything, more than anything
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too
Yeah, this, is my wish

Andy. It started out skipping school, driving around Belleville smoking cigarettes and drinking beer. Many memories were made over the years. Saturday night game night or Dixie. Family camping, Florida and Alaska. You will always be one of my best friends. My deepest sympathy to Megan, Samantha, Danniele, Zack and D.L.

I just heard of Andy’s passing this morning and I am in such disbelief. I worked with Andy many years at First American prior to his retirement. Andy was a personality I’ll never forget. His compassion for people was unlike any other. I pray for peace an healing for his husband, children, and family. Andy, until we meet again my friend.

I knew Andy when I was 18. We all hung out as a group and had great times. Andy was gracious enough to be a groom in my wedding and Meaghan was our flower girl in May of 1986. I was saddened to hear about his passing so young. He always made us laugh. To his children and brother Dave you have my prayers and condolences. You rest in peace and and thanks for the fun you brought to our group.
