    So sorry to open paper and see Andy's name in there. It's been years since I've seen him on the softball fields of Moundsville, but I always remember Andy as a great guy and good competitor. I'm sure he'll be missed and always remembered by his family and others whose lives he touched during his time on this earth. Also being so close to the 4th of July, I should thank him for his service during our country's troubled times in the 60's
