I know it's easier to be mad than sad. I'm mad he pushed those closest to him away. I'm mad he didn't talk to someone and ask for help. I'm mad that he leaves behind a son who is so young he probably won't have any memory of his dad when he gets older. I'm mad he pussied out and let the demons he was battling win

It is a very sad thing for all of us and very hard to swallow. Not only for us former bandmates, but for his sister who has assumed responsibility for his final expenses.

Nobody really has any extra money these days, so such a burden has a profound effect when it is so unexpected like this.

So, what is going to happen is some members of our local music community are arranging a Benefit/Memorial Concert to help raise the funds that are needed to take care of Andy's final expenses.

This will take place on August 24th at the Rogersville Playhouse (upper level of the American Legionbuilding). Several musical acts will perform, including the last group that Andy was a part of, Stonewall.

Door prizes will be given. Also, Raffles to participate in. Maybe even a silent auction.

The details are being hammered out as quickly as possible, and will be shared immediately upon completion.

Please consider making plans to attend and help raise money for such a worthwhile cause. I am sure those left behind will greatly appreciate it.

God Bless!
