    Dear Jan and family, so sorry to hear about Andy's passing. I am out of town and unable to be there in person. What a good guy he was. We served on many committees over the years and he always made them tolerable. We worked together on so many issues -- he was fair but honest with the patients. He helped so many people at Senior Services. Jan, I am truly sorry for your loss. Sue Bower

    RIP my friend. I worked with Jan and Andy for many years. I think Andy and I laughed more than we worked. He was very particular about his job. Had so many friends. I used to go take bites out of his enormous lunches and he never gained a pound. What a special man and fruend. He left us too son Karen kunak

    Yesterday I told a joke and I heard Andy say BOOO, as he often did when I told a joke. Then he said I didn't say anything because Kevin you know that I'm not here. You know I was just an energy source and now I'm not. We often had this discussion about the after life. So I argued and told him that he was here and that he would just have to deal with the fact that he had been wrong all these years. Because that's the only way that we can deal with the fact that we won't see him again. There will be days that will be worse for our family - New Years Eve, Kentucky Derby Day & yes even Halloween. Any night that Deb and I are on our deck and we look at the stars we will miss hearing hear the passion in his voice. Any day that I am out in the yard putzing ( as Andy would say) and I look over to see if the garage or shed door is open. I would know that he would soon say "how about a cold one?" So, if you see me sitting on my wall having a cold beer seemingly alone - know that I am not, because Andy is sitting next to me and no- I am not talking to myself.
