You're missed, Andy. Not just for your biting sarcasm and sharp wit, but as a brother.

I didn't know him other than some email exchanges. His loss is still felt on this site. I can only imagine the impact his loss has had on the real, non-internet world.

I’m sitting on the couch he lived on for a week. Bought a Junior’s cheesecake today. Will eat it and do some burpees to box jumps. You are missed, Andy.

I got a lot of good advice from Andy over the years. I wish he was still around to bounce things off of.

SOTB you may be gone, but you are very much still here- amongst those who will never forget, who knew of you and how you lived, and chose to continue on..

This thread, this place- to me anyway- has reached hallowed status.
Not only because of you, but the twenty-three other Souls here with you- all of you are now no longer unacquainted nor separate from the other, but are together in a gathering of brothers only you and your kin will ever know. It is beyond my understanding, but not quite beyond my ability to appreciate such bonds.

I am humbled and offer my respectful remembrance.

This sucks

As always I randomly catch myself saying "I need to call andy and ask him about this". Glaring reminder of how small our circle is.
I laughed at the cheese cake comment as we all have heard of his opinion on the best cheese cake. :)
