We always think of Andy and your family when we pass your home on Meadowood and, of course, whenever there is mention of 9/11. Your article was a wonderful reminder of the smiling, happy person Andy was. Andy will always be a hero to us!

I'm so happy that Dorothy is moving happily on with her life. Of course, we will always remember Andy fondly. RIP
