Karla, I have been thinking and talking about Andy so much in the past few months. The sentiment that keeps repeating is that he was exactly who you would want to see during an emergency - because he radiated as such a solid, serene, no-bullshit, funny, comforting person. Truly one of the good ones. One of the best ones. I feel very lucky that I was able to get to know him. None of this is fair and I’m heartbroken for you and with you. Sending my deepest condolences and hope that you can find peace and calm. ❤️

Karla, I am so sorry for your loss. Andy was such a fantastic and genuine guy. So fun to be around and always with a smile on his face, even when things were not perfect. I feel so fortunate to have had time with him this summer to just catch up and dream a little. He will be missed greatly, and I will continue to treasure the times we spent together. My deepest condolences to Andy's family as well.

The love of my life is gone...I have no words but thank all of you who have been an incredible support to us over this difficult time.

Karla and family, Steve and I are thinking about you during this difficult time. We will really miss Andy and all our fun times hanging out on our patio, at your house, or at one of Andy's gigs -- his musical talent was out of this world. We think it's fitting that Andy and the great Lin Brehmer are on this beautiful, unknown journey together. Much love, and let us know how we can support you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
