Andy White.....MEMORIAL
« on: April 05, 2017, 09:42:09 pm »
Nancy called me this afternoon.  It is by her request that all memorial gifts in Andy's name be made to the Forestry Forum.  She feels like the "normal" charitable organizations are dead ends and she would never know how much, if any, ever actually met any special needs.  Certain paraphernalia, etc. could be purchased and used annually, for example, at the Pig Roast.  This would be a lasting memorial honoring Andy and his contributions and love for the Forestry Forum.

She also has another request.  She would be honored if there is any member that would be led to build an Urn for Andy's ashes.  If so, you could contact me and I could relay any such information to her or place you in contact with her.

I am more of a nuts and bolts guy so no capability to make an urn, but I'm sure someone or several will chime in.

How would we make a donation earmarked for Andy's Memorial, as opposed to the general fund?

Thanks so much for all the kind words. Even though my heart is heavy all of you on this forum have made me feel so loved. Andy loved this forum, as you could tell by all of his posts. His spirit will live on here. Right now I am just going through the emotions. A big huge thank you to Bruno and Yukon for accepting my request for a special box or urn for Andy's cremains. Truly amazing people on here. Andy learned so much and I know he taught a lot of you to not be afraid to do projects that you thought were impossible. I pray that you guys will never forget this man who was my heart and soul and best friend
Thank you GOD for blessing me much more than I deserve.

We have finalized the memorial service for Andy. It will be very casual......a gathering of good friends and family. Lunch will be served. If you have any special stories or words to say about how you met this wonderful man we encourage you to speak out. I know that most of you live so far away and will not be able to attend just please say a little prayer to lift our spirits on that day. The memorial will be on Wednesday May 17th starting between 10:30 and 11. I will send you directions if you are coming. It will be in Orange, Texas where we used to live before retirement.
Thank you GOD for blessing me much more than I deserve.

Lynn, you were so special to him also. He was so appreciative for all you did and still do for members that are down on their luck. Planning the next adventure and wondering what you always had up your sleeve w as something he looked forward to hear about. You and Pat will forever be in my heart. Looking forward to my much needed hug at the memorial. Will send direction soon.
Thank you GOD for blessing me much more than I deserve.

Pat and I drove to Brookeland, TX yesterday and spent some time visiting with Nancy before we enjoyed a nice Catfish/Shrimp Supper at the Catfish Cabin.  Andy's Memorial Service was today.
 

 
The service was very informal but also very touching.  Several in attendance related special instances where Andy's love for others and giving spirit revealed the reason that so many people loved and admired this dear friend.
 

 
 

 
 

  

 
Nancy had lovingly arranged pictures and memorabilia recalling special moments and events that they had shared together.
 

 
The Spalted Maple box that Bruno of NH donated for Andy's service.
 

 
Andy's USMC Service Flag.
 

 
Yes, we had a delightful meal and enjoyed visiting and recalling our past experiences with Andy.
 

  
Tool Cookies!
 

  
And desert.

     Thank you, Lynn and Pat, for being there to celebrate Andy's life with us.  It was just what Andy would have wanted, good friends, good eats and good music!  Your words spoken of Andy will forever touch my heart.  Thank you.

The memorial for Andy was beautiful x2. The love in that room yesterday filled my heart like it had never been filled before. I was overwhelmed and still am. Lynn Davis, the words you spoke lovingly of Andy, are forever etched in my heart. Thank you and Pat for visiting and staying with me at the lake. And by the way, Lynn, thanks for hanging my shelf. The dinner we shared at the Catfish Cabin was wonderful. Andy touched many lives during his lifetime and I know he will live on through all of his caring and loving stories. Thanks to all who said a prayer or comment for our family during this time. Thank you Lynn for sharing the pictures.
Thank you GOD for blessing me much more than I deserve.
