To the family and friends of Andre: Please accept our sincere sympathy and prayers at this sad time. Andy was a regular attender at the Monday night prayer and communion service at Riverview. Even when he was very sick he insisted on being present. When he was unable to be there he was still very much part of the group and was prayed for even in his absence.

May he rest in peace.
