Our thoughts are with you and your family Lorraine.

From: Linda and Nick Poznikoff
Relation: Lived in our subdivision for many years and always called on Andy to do our key and lock work.

So very sorry to hear about Andy’s passing. He always had a smile on his face and was a cheerful person. I know how much you will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

From: Pat & Linda Hampson

Linda and I almost always ran into Andy at the Community Park as he walked around with Rambo. We always laughed when Andy told us what kind of mood Rambo was in. Rambo would tag along at his own speed and was not the slightest bit interested in ‘talking’ to us. Andy, on the other hand, would always greet us with a “hello Linda, hello Pat, how are you today!”
A sad time for everyone, he was a truly warm person who made our morning walks a pleasure.

From: John Unger
Relation: Friend

Great to have have met again after many years between. It’s been a gift to have volunteered alongside of you. You have finished well and left a blazed trail not hard to find. We continue to see your smile and it encourages us. We already miss you but our journey ends in the Promised Place so we will meet again.

RIP John

From: Jackie benedick
Relation: I'm his daughter

It’s been 16 days and I’ve missed you every minute of every one. Until we meet again daddy, love you always XXOO
