I think about Andy at lot not only because I see his cousin at
Giant Eagle Pharmacy, but because I lost my son 7 years ago and I have more compassion today for other mothers. Odd thing is that after my son got a
4 wheeler and jokingly told me he
landed on his face.... I commented to him "What would I do if you REALLY hurt yourslef and ended up paralyzed!" "I would have to hurt you and end up in jail because I couldn't live with you like that" The awful part was just two days later he died from massive head injuries..The result of the autopsy was that he had a heart condition that make him black out and fall off the bike...causing his death....but if he would have lived he would have had to have a heart transplant.
I feel real bad for Andy,,,yet at the same time I get a real
joy from his conviction and enthusiasam . I would like to meet him someday and give him a really big hug...
You hang in there Andy,,,you are absolutlely right when you can realize that God has a better plan for you..
