May God give the Ivey family the peace and comfort that only He can give during this time of loss. Andre was my stylist for over 25 years. He was a kind, thoughtful person. He shared his God given wisdom about life with me many times. Even though I moved away, I called him from time to time with hair coloring questions and he would laugh at me like a big brother while still giving me the best instructions. Andre started out as my stylist and ended up being my friend. I will truly miss him.

Artay, Sheila and the entire Ivey Family. I was so saddened to hear of the passing of my Very Dear Friend Andre. I considered him as my lil brother I never had. His calm demeanor and caring about people was very unique in this time of constant change. But Andre remained Andre. Not only because he was the only person I trusted with my hair for 30 to 35 years, but because he was a person I was happy to say was also a friend in the true meaning of Friend. I'm glad Artay that you, me, and Andre took that selfie together New Years Eve. This is a picture I will cherish forever. Andre loved Stepping and now he has stepped himself into the Heavenly Gates with our Father. Prayers to you all. Dee-Dee Shoemaker

André Ivey!!! A solid brother, good man, ambitious, easy going and unforgettable, mostly because of his diligent, open and kind nature. Its hard to imagine the future without seeing, laughing, and embracing Andre in the spirit of brotherly love and admiration for each other as in years passed. Sheila, Artay and family I pray that God our Father give you all the strength to carry on, through the days ahead. May God our Father mend your broken hearts and keep you all in His peace that passes all understanding, as Andre take his rest in the promise of Jesus Christ.
