    I knew Andy from the convenience store that I work at and he lived behind we had only known each other close to a year but we had many conversations about his love of work family etc He would often come by on his way home if he saw my car in the parking lot saying if you need anything we are right here give us a call ! he will be missed ! May God comfort Kat and the rest of the Family !
