We were so saddened to hear of Andy’s death. Even though several years have passed since we had talked with Andy, we continue to remember his good humor and great joy in life during our neighborhood days in Old West Lawrence, as well as good times with the entire Siler family over the years.
Our family sends care and condolence in this difficult time to all of your family.
