We all miss our friend Andy, our security guard at RIMI. He looked out for us for 10 years, always with a smile, his coffee and doughnut by his side. One night he was walking us out to our cars and it was dark out and I said don't worry, Andy will protect us and he said "that's right, I can scream just as loud as you can" He had a great sense of humor, very witty. I miss him so much!! R.I.P. Andy, I'll never forget you! Marge

I first met Andrew back in the early 70's. He was a wonderful, warm individual always trying to see the best in people. By his own admission, he had a Pollyanna belief that by and large people genuinely wanted to do the right thing.'My prayers go out to all affected by his loss.
