Uncle Andrew has always been a handsome man. The picure of him in uniform is perfect, a perfect representative of the kind person he has been. I remember the awesome outdoor fireplace he bulit on Geneva St (my paren's house). I remember and value family times shared, including holidays, weddings, anniversaries and just good old Sunday visits. I remember clearly the love and devotion he had for his parents, siblings, children and grandchildren , and all of his nieces and nephews. Uncle Andrew will live on in our hearts as does Aunty Mary. May he be at peace as he meets his loved ones in heaven. Ralph, Joanne and all the family, I offer prayers of condolence to y
...ou as you grieve the loss of your beloved.
Love, Christine and Harry
