Memories Timeline


  1. Andy was such a sweet, caring man. We enjoyed many conversations with him going out to breakfast and at church; we will surely miss his friendship. Thankful that he is with his Lord, the Saviour for eternity.


  3. Andy and Helen were part of our small Bible study group for many years and we always found them to be such a sweet and delightful couple. My husband enjoyed trading jokes with Andy and playfully giving one another a hard time. A more caring individual would be hard to find. We send our deepest condolences on his passing and pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort you in your loss.
