Not sure what to say?

I was honored to be the representative that Andrew Moore sought out during my years at the corporate AT&T store, on ISB, until my retirement in 2018. He sought me out usually for billing issues but I was always delighted. The statement in his obituary "he never met a stranger" was right on point. I was visiting the new AT&T location a month or two ago and he happened to be in the store as had moved his service to another carrier and was back getting his AT&T service...

Andrew and I met 13 years ago at my first monthly meeting for Title I School Board personnel regularly held in Kissimmee, Florida. He graciously reached out to me and provided valuable information about the purpose of the regional Title I meetings and how the meetings would help to nourish and cultivate my learning/professional development within the Orange County School District Title I program. A true gentleman, scholar, world class human being and friend will be missed not only by me but...

Deedra,

Way before we meet. Mr.Moore and I had.
You see he was team leader of the 7th grade house.
At Campbell Middle school.

What a gentle soul. He had a calmness about him.
He taught me, grace. Truly.

We are better people for having him in our world.
Now him and Dee Dee will walk together in Heaven.

Call on me for any thing.

God walks with you this morning. Tears are falling from the sky. For his passing. Hugging...

To Deedra and your entire family, my deepest condolences on your loss. May time heal your pain, and your thoughts turn to the joyful memories of a life well lived.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
