Jane and family,
We are so sorry to hear about Andy. We were out of town at the time of his death and didn't get home until this past week and only heard about it then. He is definitely in our prayers as well as you and your family.

Dear Jane, Tom, Jerry, Bernie, Terri and Steve,

On behalf of my Mom and Dad, Stan and Ruth and the rest of the Krebs family, Mike, Judy, Patty and Denise, we wish to extend our condolences to your family during this difficult time. We have very fond memories of Andy and the entire Dotsey family while you resided in norther Kentucky. There is not a New Years Eve celebration that goes by that my parents do not reminisce about those parties and the good times which were shared.

We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Jane & family,
Frank & I are deeply saddened by Andy's death. We both loved Andy very much and will always have fond memories of him and you, as well. You know the story of Andy questioning Frank when he was caught harvesting vegetables in MY garden space on the SEAS property in July 1982! It makes me smile just thinking about it!
I am in Austin TX, working, until Monday, June 15th, so will not be able to attend visitation or the funeral. Frank will probably do so. I will keep Andy, you, & the family in my prayers. Love,

I can't convey how much I've been agonizing over not being able to be in Lexington with everyone, but while everyone there will be celebrating a life that has passed, I hope to be celebrating the beginning of a new one. I love you all and wish I could be there.
