Andy definitely added value to this board. He lived his life on his terms. He will be greatly missed.

Love you Brother.

I am pretty sure this is what he would want, for us celebrate his amazing life and remember him for who he was, one hell of a friend.

Even now that he is gone I still find myself thinking "what would Andy think, what would he say about this? What would he do right now?" WWAD, perfect.

Andy was a unique guy who gave me wise counsel several times and went out of his way to help me out when I really needed it. I wish I could have talked to him one last time.

To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."

He never missed an opportunity to raz me and once or twice I thought he was going to get me kicked out of here - but I still respected his wisdom and analysis a great deal. He was an expert on almost every subject he chose to speak and the world is a darker place without him.

RIP.
