    Barb and family, I was saddened to learn of Andy’s passing. Barb, you and Andy were very good to my family when they lived next door. When I visited Rick and Sabrina, I was a recipient of that goodness. As you know, Andy loaned me tools on many occasions. He also took my car to change the oil and washed it at the same time. I shall never forget the many kindnesses. I know that each of you have many fond memories to cherish and share. Sincerely, Marvella Carr

    Barb & Family,

    We are deeply saddened by the passing of Andy. Our family was so blessed to have him as our neighbor. He will forever be remembered as the kindest person we have ever known: always ready to lend us a helping hand, play with our kids, share the bounty of his garden and entertain us with stories of his youth, family and Mayland. We were amazed and inspired by his energy and work ethic. The world has lost a shining star.

    Rest in peace Andy.

    Love the Carr Family – Rick, Sabrina, Hayden and Colton

    “A gentle word, a kind look, a good-natured smile can work wonders and accomplish miracles.” ~ William Hazlitt.

    The lives of those who have been apart of St Clement, Our Lady of Grace, Mary Mother of the Redeemer have been blessed with some of the most amazing people such as the Mraz family.

    Mr Mraz can be described as humble, kind, gracious, sweet man…a gift from God. His faith exuded confidence, his hope offered assurance…”Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31.

    We will miss Mr Mraz and will celebrate his life. We send our love, and will continue to pray for the Mraz family.

    The Lord called him home…God is there to say “I see your broken heart and I will make you whole again”

    Love The Ramos Family
