Damn...

Jesus...
So, I have been off comms for a long time for various reasons. I just saw this about Andy. This is absolutely crushing. I will always cherish our talks and infinite ridicule. Loved that guy. Andy, I hope you are at peace and I will see you on the other side. RIP Brother.

He would have definitely called you GAY for being gone so long so I’ll do it for him:

Welcome back homo.

SOTB would definitely approve of this message.
Thanks, Brother.

Outstanding! My 5 year checkup is this October. Congratulations.

I too wish the same of SOTB, and too many others.

As I was reading thru the condolences, I got to KidA’s and thought it could not be put more eloquently, thoroughly or accurately as that. What I remember most about SOTB was that he was an agitator, in a good way. He made you rethink your opinions, analyze the basis for them and question their validity. He was a proud, sometimes worried but always caring and supportive father. He was a mentor and friend to many. He was a true warrior that put every ounce of his being into the fight and would fight to the death. To quote him: Fuck Cancer – you took his body but you will never conquer his soul.

RIP, Andy. You did make a difference. May God swiftly heal the loss of those you loved and love you and may they be transported ASAP to a time when memories of you bring smiles instead of tears.

That's a great post. Andy was a great guy. We disagreed about a lot but he provided me with some serious help when I needed it and gave me.some excellent life advice that I'm very glad I took. He was an original.

Met Andy in carbine class in TX years ago, he was a great guy then and I loved how he could make a point or debate on the site. Truly a gift to the board in so many ways. I missed his interaction immediately after his departure. While I was just a spectator, it struck home all the same.

RIP

I've been gone for some time, growing up etc. I was curious about everything going on in the world and wanted to gain some outside perspective. I logged in and saw a few avatars with RIP SOTB and stumbled on this thread. I can't really describe my feelings knowing that South Of The Border passed away, leaving such a hole in this community.

I remember when KidA first joined and how I quietly cheered him on in the Lounge as a fellow punk rocker/Vespa fan, taking his lumps in the Lounge. SOTB seemed to be the first BTDT to break the mold and step up to show public support for KidA. I think it just speaks to an immense desire to be authentic and go his own way. Whether it was about geopolitical unrest, or about your girlfriend's ass... he had his opinion and that was that. With that said, I'll slap a "GAY!" on this post.

RIP SOTB. You are, without a doubt, 1 in 100000000000000000000.
