Sue and family I wish I could be there but have other obligations. Please know that I am thinking of you all.

Sue, I'm so very sorry to hear about Andy. I just heard, and here it is the middle of June. My heart is broken. He was a kind and gentle giant. I was so honored to call him my friend. There was a day he stood up for me like a true gentleman and I will forever be in debt to him for that moment. Heaven is a little brighter with him in it. Love you so much!
