    Sorry to hear about Andy. Hadn’t seen him in years. Didn’t know Norma had passed either. Hugs to the family and friends. Have Troy email me. May God be with you all during this difficult time.

    I view the obits every morning at the beginning of my salon day, and was saddened to see Andy’s name there. Even though it was a long time ago, back in the day of Patsy and Fayes hair salon, I distinctly remember how nice Andy was to me, and everyone, how mellow, how artistic, one of the sweetest guys. I had thought I would try to make the memorial service, but only found out a couple of days before, and had to work. It would have been nice to see Donna, and really anyone who knew Andy. Although I don’t know any other family members, I want to convey my most sincere sympathy for your loss. Take care.
