Continued....thermos and the 3 of us began our ascent. Andy and I, physical specimens that we were, stopped repeatedly to gasp for air and hope tha we would survive; promising tha we wouldnever do this again. Once at the summit, we could rest and enjoy our coffee. As we sat quietly, savoring our coffee, anticipating the spectacle of sunrise, Andy got that look on his face that was a clear signal that somehting was not right. He remarked that it was the wost cofee he ever tasted and why would I put lemon in coffee? I sipped min and I agreed that it was a bit "odd". It then dawned on me (pun intended) that the day before, Cory had 7-up in the thermos and I hadn't emptied it. For the next 15 years, when we were together, he always had to remind me of 7-up coffee on the dunes. It was that same morning that we ventured into the Portuguese bakery and the clerk was missing a hand. Cory and I anted to bolt from the store because we knew what was coming. Andy would look at the clerk and whisper to Cory, completely deadpan, "He's missing a hand! Where is it? What do you think happened? Let's ask him! Do you think he knows? Does he poke doughnuts with it? and on and on. Then he would get quiet and just give you that look and you would get those 5th grade giggles as he stook stone-faced. When the clerk finally spoke with a high pitched lisp, we had to leave. There was the night he tried to convince the Maitre'D that I was the punter for the Redskins and shouldn't have to wait in line. The numerous free drinks provided when Andy announced that it was one of the group's birthday, which it never was. Hundreds of games of yahtzee after dinner, Fred's Red Sled, putting burned cork on our faces including "little Jennifer" and on and on. Cory and I are beating ourselves up for not making the trip up to Cape Cod for so long but life got in the way. A message to all of you - Never let life get in the way of letting people know you care about them and love them and think about them. Life is too short. Corny as it may sound, take time to "stop and smell the roses". I'm sorry we didn't. We will certainly never forget Andy and what it meant to have known him and to have had him be a part of our lives. Corky & Cory

I know we're late in posting this, but how can you adequately put into a few sentences 40 years of memories? He really was unique! I noticed that Mike mentioned Norman's Tavern. My Dad owned Norman's and that is where he met Norma and Andy. Andy tended bar part time and I recall Dad saying that Andy was the only one he trusted. My Dad was also proud of the fact that he never had a fight in his tavern until the night some guy said the wrong thing to Norma and Andy cleaned his closk. Norman's was full of characters. One in particular was Jerry Spaulding who I think was already dead. He had a gravely voice and would start hacking up his lungs. Andy could do a dead on impression of Jerry that would crack us up 30 years later. Norma and Andy were originally friends with my parents. As I got into my late 20's, my wife and I started spending time with Norma and Andy because of our shared intest in antiques, good food, and an occasional adult beverage. We went many places together and to this day, Cory cannot hear "Delta Dawn" without getting nauseated! (VFW, circa 1976). Delta Dawn on the juke box and Sidecars to excess will cause this to happen. There was the antique auction in the chicken coup, Brownsville, Provincetown, and the many nights in front of the fireplace at Mitchell Mansion. I could go on forever. This is one of those "you had to be there" stories. One of our trips to Provincetown, Andy, Cory and I decided to get up before dawn, climb the highest dune, drink coffee, and watch the sun come up. Norma, being the smartest of the group, elected to remain in a nice cozy bed. I had the coffee in a

We will always remember you as Andy, and the wonderful outlook you had on life, your keen interest in learning, your talents as an artist, and your humor and friendship.

Yes, we miss you terribly, but we know that the years of suffering and the coping with your illness are over, and now you reside in Heaven in peace.

You are gone, but not forgotten. Your legacy continues through Norma and your children. Andy Anders' spirit lives on and on forever.

We are GLAD that we knew YOU!!!
