Dear Andy, I used to see you a few times a year and enjoyed our lively conversations on all kinds of subjects. You always did the cooking and I really admired your skill, feasts from nothing sometimes! We enjoyed each other’s odd gifts from time to time, and you were always ready with a helping hand, both in labor and skill. You were well-read, knowledgeable about lots of things, up for a good debate. A man of many talents. You are missed.
