To the Fox family, I worked with Andrew. Dad, Mom, siblings, thank you for your job in raising an outstanding human being. Thank you for installing the values and honor in this great human being that I hold as a measuring stick for new troopers. Thank you Ginny for sharing him with us every day he marked on duty. Be proud in the fact that he was the happiest and most confident man I've ever met. He knows that you would have loved him as much if he was President Fox, Trooper Fox, or ditch digger Fox. I hope your grief has lessened over the years. But rest assured he has not been forgotten. I think of him every day. I'm always here for you all. There are people on this earth that can live 100 years and not have the love and support you gave him in his short time. I know if he could have made it to 100, he would have given it up for the years with you Ginny without hesitation. This earth cannot hold the memorial that is fitting for a man like Andrew. If I live to be 100, or 1 second, I look forward to seeing my friend again.
