Above all, Andy liked to hear the word of the Lord, he liked to talk about what the Bible said in Cherokee and he liked gospel music. He encouraged all of us to believe in the Lord and stay prayed up. Andy wanted us to love and pray for each other. He was a kind-hearted man, proud of his Cherokee Heritage, who had a smile each time you saw him.
Andy will surely be missed by his family and friends.
