Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
**MEMORIAL CELEBRATION UPDATE** Andy's memorial service will be hosted on Sunday 1/23/21 at Unity of the Blue Ridge in Mills River, NC, and on Live Stream. You can find the link to view the service online in his journal updates.
Update Fall 2021: Andy has been in the Asheville VA Medical Center since 10/4/21... going through chemotherapy treatment for an aggressive form of Diffuse B-Cell Lymphoma. It's been a pretty intense time and I've (Lauren) mostly been keeping people up to date via Facebook, Instagram, Texts, & Phone. It's pretty exhausting trying to give folks who love Andy and me a concise and informative picture of what has been unfolding. I'm returning to this CaringBridge site to help everyone stay informed, particularly those not using social media. Know that we appreciate all the loving messages sent our way. Andy's daughters, Karina & Noelle are staying with me at our new home, helping to navigate his cancer treatment.
--------------- Long ago (2017) I created this CaringBridge site... This is the old info: On November 9, 2017, just as Andy and I were getting up to begin our day, Andy began experiencing odd symptoms on his right hand and foot. Thus began our journey with a Hemorrhagic Stroke.
