    I first met Andrew in the middle of high school through friends of friends. He was a positive, friendly, funny guy each and every time I met him.

    It has been said by more than a few people, bears repeating -- when I think back to when I first met Andrew which would have been 1985, I was impressed by his care for others right at the get go. All he was concerned about was what others around him...  more
