I Loved Andy so much. He was the sweetest lil man. I would go visit Andy and his dog Jacks.. I could always make Andy smile, sometimes even a laugh or two. I've never seen such a bond between a man and his dog as I seen with Andy and Jacks. They truly Loved each other. I'm sure Jacks is so lost without him as well as all his friends and family. My sympathy and prayers go out to all the family. Andy I'm gonna miss ya. R I P my friend. Sending all my Love..... God Bless
