The family would like to extend a special word of thanks to Father Larry, Father Merkatoris, Sister Mary Bernard, Sister Helen and Sue Beno, as well as other friends, neighbors and relatives for their support, encouragement and prayers. Also heartfelt gratitude to Andy's caregivers these past two weeks, Jeanne, Jessica, Shanna, Sheila, Tiffany and Teresa, to Dr. Christopher Pinn and the entire staff at Unity Hospice.
Andy's children want to express their love and sincerest thanks to their mother for her selfless dedication and the loving care she provided to Dad. God saw he was getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He took Andy by the hand and said, "Come with Me." It broke our hearts to see him go, but he didn't go alone, all our hearts went with him the day God took him home. A golden heart stopped beating, a voice we loved is stilled, a place is vacant in our home which never can be filled.
We'll always love and miss you, and you will be with us every day to guide us. Lots of love from all of us, Mom, kids, grandkids and great-grandkids.
