You always were my favorite “Roads Scholar”.
Remembering the letters that you wrote to the various Municipalities.
We laughed. Often wondered if the receivers of your letters understood.
Now the Angels with be laughing and admiring your intelligence and the
your skill of the English language.

Thank you, Jean!
Dad always had a way with words and humor. My sister and I were reminiscing all the random message machine recordings that embarrassed us growing up.
To the family of Andy.
The last time I talked with Andy, he was helping take care of grandchildren and enjoying it. Andy loved his family. You are thought of. I hope it helps knowing that others care.
Thank you, Annette!
Dad loved being a Grandpa and considered the boys his best crew. Your kind words mean a lot during this difficult time.
So sorry for your loss! It was great to visit with Andy at my dad’s birthday party about one week before.
God Bless each of you!
Phil and Muriel Bouman
