    One of Andy's special joys was when he had an opportunity to attend worship at Immanuel (Klinger).  And when we visited him, usually requested singing some hymns, and loved to catch up with activities back at church.  Very impressive that he never complained about his problems, which appeared to be many, but pretty much accepted whatever the situation.  Blessings to all.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Andy's family.  He was always such a friendly man who had a smile for everyone.
