To Mary and Children, was so sorry to hear about Andy's passing. He was such a nice guy with a beautiful family. Wanted to share something funny. I live right down the alley from the bar. I got his water bill from the bar by mistake and almost lost my mind. I took it up to him......we had a great laugh and he would frequently say............hey wanna pay the water bill ??? Great Guy !! Always happy and wanting to make others smile and be happy too ! Sending Prayers and Hugs to all of you. Bonnie Longo
