I was thinking about Andy yesterday, when this caught my eye. We sure do miss you around here brother.

Wish you were here, SOTB. You'd have some insightful comments to put things in the right perspective.

I've been absent from the forum for a little over a year and this is a shock to hear. My condolences to his family and all of you that knew him as a friend. Judging by what all of you who knew him have said, he left this world a better place for his having been in it. As a fellow atheist (or at best agnostic) I would think he would've been happy about that. Rest in Peace, Mr. Potts.

IMHO... he has but I'm one of those flying spaghetti monster there's something after believers. Wish he was still here. I would love to read his thoughts on the Election AAR.

HBD Marine, RIP and fuck cancer!

Girlfriend's mother is an AML leukemia survivor, so we did MD Anderson's "give cancer the boot" walk today. We walked with her mother, and a group of survivors and their families. All donations went straight to MD Anderson, no BS skimming off the top.

Saw a really really fat cop at the starting line that would have made Andy giggle, then realized where I was, and got a bit choked up. Strange for a dude I'd never met, but hit me nonetheless.

Just made me think of the dude, thought I'd share.

Visit often. Very rarely post. I always enjoyed reading his posts -- even when I disagreed. Some of what he has said has influenced how I go about my day job.

RIP -- Marine.

Condolences to his family and those who could call him friend.

Please forgive my absence and how long it took me to write this.

A good friend and member here told me of this when it happened and it broke my fucking heart. I've lost a lot of friends over the years and it never gets easier, but Andy was always a little different. When I went through a very difficult time a few years ago, SOCNET members came together and quite literally saved my life. I could afford treatment for a cancer diagnosis that I was terrified to speak of and embarrassed about. It was a diagnosis that Andy himself had been through, which resulted in his "symmetry". During the whole ordeal, Andy was a friend and confidant who was my backbone when I needed a kick in the ass.

If I could have picked someone to be my father, to be the grandfather of my daughters, I would have been blessed to have Andy in that role. I'm still blessed to have been able to call him my friend and for the way he opened up to me and showed me such kindness and compassion. I never got to tell him that. I regret that I'll never get the chance. But I say it now so that others might see a side of Andy that most people would not have known. Andy was always a true warrior, but there was so much more to him.

Rest Easy my friend. I hope every day that your family is well and know that those who knew you will keep your memory alive. If I could be half the man you were I would have lived a good life.
