  2. Once upon a long time ago, when I was very small, my family lived across the road from the Zylyk’s. They used to babysit and brother and I. I remember some mornings we would come over and go down in the basement to watch tv. I remember the laundry shoot and the bike in the backyard cause they had a concrete slab to ride the bike on…I remember Andy being an avid camper and going camping with Helen and him, one weekend. I learned a few things about fresh mountain water. I had remembered that Andy always had a hat on and that his birthday was the day after mine. I think he used to tinker in the garage. My parents divorced when I was young and we moved away a long time ago. My time spent over at Andy’s place were some of my happiest memories. His picture is as I remember him to be with the smile. He was a wonderful person.

    My condolences go out to the family….although it’s been four and a half years since.
