Andy, you lived a good life, a productive life, and you helped people, especially artists! I always loved running into you at the Times, and I appreciate the beautiful b&w spread you offered in PRINT of my Palestinian refugee camp photos (which sadly still remain in Beirut.) Farewell, and good journey to you.

My heartfelt condolences to the family. May you draw comfort from God' promise in Job 33:25 - "he will return to the days of his youthful vigor" and we draw comfort that with God all things are possible.

Andy was one of the kindest men I've ever known. When I joined Print magazine in 1969, he was art director, and his wife, Carol, was his assistant. I was a gal Friday, but within a short time moved into the editorial department, where I remained for 20 years. During that time, Andy and Carol became my very good friends. We shared not only the love of our work but also movies, dinners, books, and trips to the country. In all that time, Andy was like a supportive, older brother to me; his loss leaves an ache in my heart.

So saddened to learn of Andy's passing.
I worked in the Promotion Dept of The NY Times when Andy was our Art Director. He was a special person who had great artistic vision for the projects that our dept. produced and he hired the best creative talents to fulfill them. He was also my mentor and very kind. It was the best of times. My deepest condolences to Carol and the entire family.
