    Charlene, Bonnie, Nea, Stormy and family
    Andy was so special to so many. I remember the first time I met her in Wanchese about 50 + years ago. What a special family she had. It has been quite a while since I last saw her and I know without a doubt that she no longer is in pain and she is with all those she loved who had gone before her. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I’m certainly sorry to hear about Andy’s passing. I remember funny things with her when I was a very little girl. My daddy loved to aggravate her and she would give it right back to him. I know you all will miss her.

  24. Ana on March 18th, 2014 10:36 am

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.


  25. jinny harris mcbride on March 18th, 2014 10:52 am

  26. Rita Jones Franklin on March 18th, 2014 2:35 pm

    Bill and family – so sorry for your loss. Will be keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers. I will never forget how much Andy made me laugh and now I expect she’s having a “laughing” good time in heaven…


  27. Mary Armstrong on March 18th, 2014 3:06 pm

    Bill and family, Andy was indeed a special person who loved to make you laugh. God Blessed all of us who knew her.

    I was so extremely saddened to hear of Andy’s passing. She was such a spirited soul who embraced life, family and friends with unparalleled enthusiasm. There was never a dull moment when Andy was around … she was pure entertainment. I will always be very grateful to the Scarborough’s who took many of us under their wings … treated us as family … shared food and shelter. I am so very sorry for your loss … Andy will truly be missed. Rest in peace young’un … give Wilma and Charles a kiss for me.
