He was in the hospital for ten days--getting better--and then he had a second, even more massive bleed. The doctor said there was no hope for recovery. He lived five more days. The kids and I kept a bedside vigil, but Andy was no longer there.  I write this blog as a tribute to him--the Read more of this blog post »

“When he looked at Brandy, he saw the desperation in her eyes. He felt like hugging her and telling her what a great sister she was to Emily. Instead, he tried to harden his features, put far more bravado in his words than he felt. “Now get out of here. I’ve got work to do.” *”
