Andy and family, Words cannot express how saddened we are to learn of your loss. We are firm believers that when we lose someone close to us, like a father, they continue to live on through us and give us unbelievable strength. They’re so connected to us that they become a part of us. May your happy memories give you peace and comfort during this challenging time.
