    Marie and Children,

    We were surprised and saddened to hear of Andy’s passing.
    We remember the warm smile and gentle eyes that truly reflected the love of God to all he encountered.

    We were personally touched by his work with MOA and experienced the kindness and dignity he gave to so many in need. No doubt he will be missed by all of you. We believe he will continue to love and serve as he enjoys a fully resurrected life with our God.

    May Andy greet all our beloved and wait for us!

    Lisa and Dobie Moser of St Joseph’s
