I always thought uncle Andy was so fun and cheerfull. I only have my childhood memories which I cherish in my heart. I hadn't seen him in 45 years or so. I know he will be dearly missed but to know he is now in heaven is so awesome!! Love and prayers are going out for the family.

Memories of Andy go back to some of my first memories of youth. He was always patient and kind. His humor and genuine concern about how things were showed his ability to make you comfortable and the sparkle in his eyes will always be a cherished memory.

May God hold you all in his loving care at this tender time and always. The world is a better place for people like Uncle Andy having touched all of our lives.

Rest in peace Uncle Harlyn
