  1. To Andy’s family – my deepest sympathy – words cannot describe what I felt when I saw Andy’s notice – I sent him a card when Carol left us – he replied – I always wondered how he would go on without her – he sent me back a thank you note – I never knew where he was or what was happening – he was so wonderful – when we were young – he was the light of my life – we were in our perhaps mid-twenties – I had two small children whom I was raising on my own – we lived at 28 Park Ave., Carol lived down the street- her brother and Andy were good friends – so goes the story – they fell in love – I did meet his Mother and Father and one of his sisters – who did not take to me – his Father took a picture of Andy and I – I guess in my ‘hayday’ I had quite the ‘legs’ – When Andy met Carol – I knew they were in love – and that I could not stand in the way – this sounds like a soup opera – but it is not – Andy was the greatest guy- so handsome – he liked to play pool – and ‘drink a little beer’ – but his heart and soul was always to family – his principles – he gave me love, courage and the strenght to go on – he and Carol had a wonderful life and of course, you children – your Dad, Andy will always be in my heart in a special place – Semper Fi, Nancy Lou

  2. Uncle Andy is and was one the kindest people I have ever met. He felt like my second father. He was also the most forgiving person. I will cherish all the memories of him that I have and every time I think of them I will thank Uncle Andy. My family and I spent countless hours at family parties, horse races, eating Limburger cheese sandwhiches and playing poker. The one memory that I will never forget is when Uncle Andy came to visit me in the hospital after my husband and I lost our son to a stillbirth. I know that Uncle Andy hated hospitals and it was very difficult for him. He walked into my room and as we sat and talked about currect events and my limited expertise on sports it soon became quiet. We both just sat there and when I looked over at him, he was crying and he wispered to me ‘ I am so sorry.’ He helped me that day and I will be forever grateful . I love you Uncle Andy.
