Dear Anne,
You and Andy are the most wonderful neighbors that anyone could wish for. Your beautiful pristine farm always looked and still does like a picture postcard. Andy was such a perfectionist and we never took for granted the beautiful scenery that we could enjoy right outside our window or on a walk to our mailbox. It warms our hearts to know that Andy never had to leave the beautiful and peaceful home that he loved so much. Please extend our condolences to Sally, Paul and their families.
Love,
Annette and Gary Feuz

Anne and family,
I was saddened to hear of Andy's passing. As you know I was fellow 4-H Agent. I enjoyed working with Andy many times. He was a very thoughtful person. I never heard him raise his voice and we had many back and forth conversations on many topics. He was a great example of a true professional.

I was honored to follow him as 4-H Program Leader for Albany County. He left a solid foundation for 4-H when he retired.

God bless my friend and colleague Andy. May he rest in peace.

Dave Hillmann

My sincerest condolences during this difficult transition in your life. Please know that although we may have not seen each other often, I will always have fond memories of the times I spent with Andy and your family. I always looked forward and got excited when I heard "Ann and Andy" were coming to town. Andy was truly a remarkable man. I will always remember his smile and caring presence he had. You and your entire extended family are in my thoughts and prayers. Tom Munn (son of Stuart and Jeanne Munn)
