To Andy’s family. We can’t be there in person. You are all in our prayers and Andy will be missed by all of the Fred Baux family in Pittsburgh PA.
It was very sad to hear of the passing of Andy. We where friends for many years on the ATSF/BNSF railroad. We worked together for years in Hi Bay at the diesel shop. My condolence go to the Baux family.
My heart goes out to the Baux family. Andy and Sharon are very special people. Andy will be missed. Sharon you are in my thoughts and Prayers. They have been with you since the accident. Also sending Love and Hugs to you. God Bless and be with you. It is at these times that there is only one set of foot prints in the sand, for the Lord is carrying you. He will as long as he needs to. Amen.
I only had the pleasure of knowing Andy for a short time. I truly feel Blessed to have known this kind and gentle man and will miss
being around a campfire that he carefully built for all to enjoy. God Bless you, Andy.
It was such a shock to hear of Andy’s accident. I am so sorry for your loss. I am glad I got to know Andy better by boarding Jack at your farm. I enjoyed the trail rides with both of you. He was so proud of the Perry Lake horse trails and I must say they are some of the best kept trails around. He was so gentle with Spec and with all the animals on the farm. He gave my dogs lots of scratches when I brought them along with me. I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you adjust to life without Andy.
With heartfelt condolences to the Baux Family on the loss of Andy. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Howard & Lorene Cox and family
